Faculty of Science / Membrane Protein Research Center, Chiba University
Professor, DirectorMembrane proteins play important roles in intercellular communication and are crucial targets for drug discovery. It is known that over 60% of commercially available drugs act on membrane proteins. In 2022, Chiba University established a research center dedicated to membrane protein research, where we focus on the production of membrane proteins, the development of structure-function analysis techniques, and the development of new drugs.
