ProLipids is an Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence 2014–2019.

Our venture combines experimental and computational approaches to unravel key mechanisms of the dynamic lipid-protein interactions in biomembranes.

This multi- and cross-disciplinary consortium is formed of two experimental and one computational research teams. We bridge expertise in

  • Biomedical and biological knowledge: Group Ikonen

    Group Ikonen
  • Biochemical and biophysical knowledge: Group Lappalainen

    Group Lappalainen
  • Sciences with computational and theoretical biophysics knowledge: Group Vattulainen

    Group Vattulainen

We study the structural principles and dynamics of lipid-protein complexes and their resulting functions, and the biomedical relevance of these.
