Japanese grant for Groves and Verpoorte

26 June 2015

The Groves and Verpoorte groups of the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy (GRIP) have recently been awarded a EUR 400,000 international grant from Daiichi Sankyo (TaNeDS) to study the formative events in protein crystallisation. By integrating microfluidics with biophysical methods the researchers hope to demonstrate that knowledge of the solution behaviour of proteins can be used to predict conditions under which crystals can be grown. A rational approach to protein crystallisation will significantly aid both the pharmaceutical industry, by supporting structure-based drug, as well as empower life science researchers to more fully understand their molecular systems.
