The Proteomics Research in Interactions and Structure of Macromolecules (PRISM) Centre brings together a large group of scientists with diverse research programs with protein science as a common denominator.
The research themes of PRISM members are related to the understanding and utilization of molecular processes in the cell and in cell-cell interactions, and include:
- signal transduction and molecular mechanisms of cancer
- protein-protein interactions and molecular mechanism of pathogenicity
- molecular mechanisms of immunity and vaccine development
- small molecular inhibitors as therapeutic agents
PRISM maintains the Protein Characterization and Crystallization Facility (PCCF), which provides access to specialized equipment guided by knowledgeable PhD-level staff.
