Deciphering proteins has published an article that includes statements made by Manuel Palacín after the “Transporters and other Molecular Machines” conference, part of Barcelona Biomed Conferences, which is organised by IRB Barcelona with the support of the BBVA Foundation.

Hosted by IRB Barcelona researchers Manuel Palacín and Miquel Coll, this conference addressed the latest technological advances in membrane protein determination. Given that many of these proteins have the capacity to enter cells, the determination of their structures may allow the design of smart drugs for many types of diseases.
