About COMPPÅ

The Center on Membrane Protein Production and Analysis (COMPPAA, or COMPPÅ for short) is an NIH NIGMS P41 Biomedical Technology Research Resource (BTRR) focused on the production and characterization of membrane proteins of relevance to biology and medicine.

Objective

Through established partnerships with Driving Biomedical Project (DBP) laboratories, the Center on Membrane Protein Production and Analysis (COMPPÅ) will develop new methodologies and reagents  for the efficient sample production, preparation, functional analyses and structure determination of membrane proteins. Applications of these methods to user’s projects are available as services to collaborating research groups. Specifically, COMPPÅ accepts new applications in the context of its Driving Biomedical Projects (DBPs) and Collaborative and Service projects (C&S).  Once these technologies have been sufficiently established, they will be made available to the membrane protein research community at large.
