The Groves and Verpoorte groups of the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy (GRIP) have recently been awarded a major 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.
The Daiichi Sankyo TaNeDS (Take a New Challenge for Drug diScovery) Global Programme is a cross-cultural research exchange and grant programme launched in 2011. The goal of this programme is to generate breakthrough pharmaceutical drugs for human health by promoting new drug discovery themes, R&D technologies and continued collaboration with external researchers and research groups.
