PROJECT

Lipids as modulators of the response to biodrugs

The modes of action of biopharmaceuticals on their target proteins are largely unknown; especially as the lipid environment of the membrane proteins play an important role in the efficacy of biopharmaceuticals. The optimization of the use or development of a new generation of biologics, including transmembrane targets, requires knowledge of the impact of the lipid environment on their mode of action and effectiveness.
