Welcome to the Home Page of the Department of Cell Physiology and Molecular Biophysics
at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. Our Department consists of an interactive
group of faculty, staff, postdoctoral trainees and students. Our central missions
are high-quality biomedical research, education of medical and graduate students and
service to the School of Medicine, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and
the Health Sciences Center as a whole. Our main research interest is in cell and molecular
physiology and biophysics, in particular membrane protein structure and function,
signaling, and molecular mechanisms of disease processes. The Department is the main
site of the multidisciplinary Center for Membrane Protein Research, which involves
faculty from eight departments at TTUHSC and TTU. The Center has a state-of-the-art
Membrane Protein Core Laboratory, available to the center members and other faculty.
I welcome you again and encourage you to contact us if you need additional information.
