Protein production facility wins new funding

The Oxford Protein Production Facility-UK (OPPF-UK) is a UK core facility for protein production located in the Research Complex at Harwell. The project has recently received further funding of £2.3M from the MRC to provide a range of highly specialized technologies incorporating robotic systems, for the high throughput expression, purification and crystallization of recombinant proteins. In partnership with UK academic groups, this technology platform is being used to study a large variety of proteins of biomedical interest (MRC OPPF webpage).
