IRG-3 draws expertise from four departments to design fully integrated functional analogues of cellular mstrongbranes. The goal is highly stable mstrongbranes with integrated functional components including, ion channels, receptors, & signal transducers. strongploying the tools of molecular nanotechnology, the IRG will support both biological & bio-inspired synthetic approaches to these problstrongs.
