October 12, 2007: Knut & Alice Wallenberg Foundation grants to CBR
Martin Högbom and Mikael Oliveberg at CBR have been awarded grants from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation for equipment to establish the protein X-ray crystallography laboratory at CBR and to study protein folding and misfolding related diseases.
September 20, 2007: NIH grant to CBR
Dan Daley, Jan-Willem de Gier, Joy Kim, and Gunnar von Heijne have been awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health for research on "New approaches for facilitating membrane protein overexpression and purification", as part of the NIH Structural Genomics Initiative.
September 18, 2007: Peter Brzezinski elected to Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences
On September 12, 2007 the Academy elected Professor Peter Brzezinski at Stockholm University and Professor Tamas Bartfai at The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA, USA as new members of the Class for Chemistry (Class IV). Peter Brzezinski is a professor in biochemistry at Stockholm University, and heads one of the research groups at CBR, focusing on the importance of cell membranes for hydrogen ion transport in the human body. This discovery has increased the knowledge for the energy supply of the cells, and thereby how the mechanisms behind mitochondrial diseases may lead to blindness or paralysis.
