The major goal of the Center for Membrane Proteins in Infectious Diseases is to determine structures of membrane proteins involved in pathogenesis. The focus is on medically important viral and bacterial membrane proteins and human membrane proteins involved in their pathogenic pathways. The Center uses the biological theme of infectious diseases as the basis for the determination of novel membrane protein structures and to develop new technologies for high throughput membrane protein expression, isolation, functional characterization, crystallization and structure determination.
