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.
