The Center for Molecular Protein Science (CMPS) brings together scientists active within the fields of biochemistry, molecular biophysics, structural biology, and physical and theoretical chemistry. Our research focuses on major areas of modern biochemistry and molecular biology. We want to understand the molecular mechanisms of biological processes by exploring the structure, dynamics, interactions and function of proteins. For more information on the different research areas covered by CMPS, please visit our Research page .
CMPS offers undergraduate and Master's level courses in biochemistry and biochemical techniques, as well as various courses in biophysical chemistry, NMR spectroscopy, and general physical chemistry. We also host the Master’s program in Biochemistry.
CMPS is a highly integrated center comprising the divisions of Biochemistry and Structural Biology (Faculty of Science) and Biophysical Chemistry (Faculty of Engineering, LTH).
CMPS offers PhD students and postdocs a highly creative environment that stimulates outstanding research.
We are proud to be the home of cutting edge research projects funded by the following prestigious grants: one ERC-Consolidator, one ERC-Advanced, one ERC-Synergy, three Knut and Alice Wallenberg Project Grants, as well as one VR starting grant, one MSCA postdoctoral fellowship, and VR project grants.
In the past, we have received another ERC-Advanced grant and two additional KAW project grants.
CMPS is excited to invite you to the 2nd Mini Symposium of our series.
Distinguished guest speaker, Dr. Dora Tang from the Max Planck Institute in Dresden, will be giving two talks on the topic: “From molecules to life: building living systems from scratch”.
For more information and schedule please see our invitation poster here.
Please join us on February 23rd, 2024 at 8:30 in lecture hall A.
Thursdays at 09:00 in the lunch room
