Membrane Protein Structural Biology Group

The Membrane Protein Structural Biology Group works on structural and functional characterizing of membrane proteins that are essential for human health and highly attractive targets in the treatment of disease.

Picture of membrane protein structure

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 the University of Copenhagen in Denmark and at Lund University in Sweden, where we work in close collaboration with the team of Karin Lindkvist.
