PUMPKIN

About PUMPKIN

The Centre for Membrane Pumps in Cells and Disease - PUMPkin is a Centre of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation.

PUMPkin research investigates the structure and mechanism of membrane proteins of the P-type family, such as the sodium pump, proton pump, calcium pump, heavy metal pumps and lipid flippases, as well as (patho)physiological aspects of their function, and their potential as drug targets in human disease and pathogens.
