Center for Membrane Protein Research | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

Mission:  The long-term goal of the Center is to advance our knowledge of the structure and function of membrane proteins in health and disease.  The Center brings together a group of TTUHSC and TTU investigators interested in the broad field of membrane-protein research.

Rationale: After completion of the human genome sequence, biomedical research has evolved into a combination of genomics, proteomics, and functional genomics.  To a great extent, biomedical research will focus on prototypical proteins and protein families, including the determination of their structures, functions, and their roles in human disease.  From this, novel knowledge will emanate rational design of new pharmacological agents that will open novel therapeutic approaches

Director:                      Dr. Lan Guan (Cell Physiology & Molecular Biophysics, TTUHSC)
