The Center for Structures of Membrane Proteins
(CSMP) provides atomic structure determination for membrane proteins including both bacterial and human membrane proteins and their homologues. Human membrane proteins encode the targets for ~40% of all therapeutic drugs in use today. We seek to understand mechanisms, and atomic interactions of these. Many of the human protein structures sought have therapeutic importance. Therefore the structures will provide an atomic level template for drug design/discovery.
Our 2014 CSMP Annual meeting will be held on March 31st at Byers Hall Room, BH212, Mission Bay Campus, 600 16th Street, San Francisco.
