Welcome to CMPS, The Center for Molecular Protein Science

Research at CMPS covers the molecular properties, structure, function, and interactions of proteins and other biomolecules.

Proteins regulate the flow of information and energy in cells and mediate the physical translocation and chemical transformations of cellular components. Protein assembly creates the intricate structures that make these processes possible. In short, proteins enable life. The ability to modulate the molecular interactions, structures and dynamics of proteins forms the basis for biomedical and biotechnological advances.

CMPS brings together scientists in biochemistry, molecular biophysics, structural biology, physical and theoretical chemistry. We uncover molecular principles and mechanisms while exploring structure, dynamics and function of key proteins in a highly integrated approach. Development of new powerful experimental and theoretical tools plays a key role.

CMPS includes two departments at Lund University: Biochemistry and Structural Biology 
and Biophysical Chemistry.
