Membrane Proteins

Master
Content

Biomembranes form the interfaces through which our cells and subcellular compartments communicate with one another and the outside world. The unique physiochemical properties of a phase that is one or two molecules thick define the fascinating challenge for understanding the functioning of some of the most important molecules for human health and disease: ion channels, transporters and cell-surface receptors, all important classes of drug targets. With access to exceptional facilities for functional and structural studies of biomembranes and membrane proteins, CPSB students learn to solve problems ranging from sensory mechanisms to drug discovery.
