Center for integrated Protein Science Munich (CiPSM)

The Munich Center for integrated Protein Science (CiPSM) has become one of the premier facilities for protein research in Germany. Set up in 2006, the major goal of the Cluster is to build up a comprehensive picture of protein functions – as isolated molecules, multisubunit complexes and molecular machines that mediate cell processes. During the first phase of the Excellence Initiative, work at CiPSM focused on the molecular properties of specific proteins. Since the beginning of the second phase, more emphasis has been placed on understanding their function in cellular networks and on the chemical manipulation of proteins for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. The Cluster employs a wide range of modern chemical, biochemical, genetic and biophysical methods. In this area, the Cluster not only uses and further develops existing methods but has set as a major goal the invention of completely new technologies.
