About the UCLA MTRC

A major goal in the fields of physiology and biophysics is to understand the molecular machinery underlying human membrane transporter functions. The Membrane Transporter Research Center (MTRC) at UCLA brings together laboratories at UCLA with a research interest in the biology, biophysics, and structure of human membrane transporter proteins.  Scientists at the MTRC are using  state of the art X-ray crystallography,  CryoEM/ET, Mass Spectrometry facilities, and multiscale computer simulations to investigate the structure-functional properties of  human membrane transporters at the atomic level.

The faculty encourage graduate students and postdoctoral research to participate in their ongoing research activities.
