Unit profile


Understanding membrane proteins linked to disease The Membrane Protein Structural Biology Group within the section of Cellular and Metabolic Research works on structural and functional characterizing of membrane proteins that are essential for human health and highly attractive targets in the treatment of disease. The overarching aim is to reveal the molecular principles and determinants of transport processes across cellular membranes for these proteins. To this end, we use a number of complementary techniques centered on X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM using the latest techniques to study structure-function-disease relationships of membrane proteins. The group is based at Lund University in Sweden and at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
