The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites grant applications for research on the structural biology of membrane proteins. This announcement is made together with 9 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Membrane proteins and their complexes play crucial roles in many cellular and physiological processes. They are essential mediators of material, information, and energy transfer between cells and their environment, compartments within cells, and compartments comprising the organ systems. Functionally normal membrane proteins are vital to health, and specific defects are associated with many known diseases.
For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Randall Stewart, Program Director, Channels, Synapses, and Circuits Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1917; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
