Blogging a crystal structure a day in 2014


Author: Brett Collins

Brett Collins is a Lab Head at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, The University of Queensland. He studies the process of Membrane Trafficking, and his team is focused on understanding how discrete molecular interactions between proteins and lipids control these processes in human cells. Dr Collins is probing the fundamental mechanisms of membrane transport, through the application of high-resolution structure determination, quantitative biophysical analyses of molecular interactions, and correlated cellular studies of essential protein machineries. Understanding these molecular mechanisms will allow us to determine how their dysfunction contributes to disease and how to target them for new therapies.
