Pär Nordlund Group
Pär Nordlund's profile page.
The main research interest of the laboratory is the structural basis for the function of proteins involved in disease processes, with a particular emphasis on cancer, inflammation and infectious diseases. The group encompasses an X-ray based structural biology unit and applies a wide range of biophysical and biochemical techniques to study protein function. The laboratory also has a track record in developing "high-throughput" technologies for solving bottlenecks in protein production, crystallization and structure analysis.
The current biological focus of the group is:
- Studies of integral membrane proteins involved in cell signalling and transport
- Studies of proteins in cancer related pathways
- Studies of Herpes proteins involved in replication and the circumvention of the human apoptosis and immune responses.
