Cell membranes

The purpose of research in cell membranes is to gain insight into the parameters that affect their function and structure. Defective membrane function can lead to disorders such as migraine, malaria, hypertension and kidney disease.


Membranes and receptors

Studies of proteins that are involved in reproduction and inflammation and the body's absorption of vitamins, drugs and other molecules.
