CytoTransport - Mechanisms and Modulation of Cellular Transport Processes

The DFG-funded research cluster "CytoTransport" combines expertise in biomedicine, computational modeling, structural biology, chemistry and materials science to investigate cellular transport mechanisms in health and disease. To this end, 9 working groups from two university research focuses are working together, represented by the two research institutes IFGA and TREE. An overarching goal is to bundle the institutes' overlapping interests and expertise in the long term.
