The COBRE Center in Protein Structure and Function (COBRE-PSF) at The University of Kansas conducts health-related basic research in protein structure and function. COBRE-PSF provides research support and mentoring to accelerate the career development of outstanding junior faculty researchers. It also maintains core laboratory facilities that are available to researchers statewide.
COBRE-PSF was initially established in 2002. This project is currently supported by a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (P30 GM110761) at the National Institutes of Health.
Our Center currently supports 13 pilot project investigators. By better understanding the structure and function of proteins present in human cells, and the way they interact, our researchers gain a deeper understanding of how proteins do the work of the cell. Through this better understanding, COBRE scientists work to develop new and improved drugs.
