Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor Interactions

Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor Interactions (FGFR) interactions with protein modulators are implicated in a number of neural disease states. The focus of this project is on investigating at the structural level of interactions of FGFRE, the extracellular ligand biding domain of FGFR, with a selection of these proteins. The project starts "from scratch" with recombinant protein expression and structural characterization will exploit both diffraction and solution scattering techniques and is realized through collaboration between researchers from Department of Chemistry, SCIENCE and Department of Neuroscience and Pharmacology, HEALTH.
