Abstract

Characterisation of membrane interactions is important for further advances in biomedical science and drug design. The biomembrane interactions facility will provide modern infrastructure to study membrane biophysics and membrane protein structure and interactions in mammalian, protozoan and bacterial cells. The facility will include a solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer and optical analytical instrumentation and biosensor equipment. These will enable determination of molecular structure and dynamics within biomembranes and determination of the rates and mechanisms of cell membrane processes; nanoscale measurement of cell membrane properties; and resolution of the interaction..
