GÉPROM at a glance
GÉPROM is a FRQS-funded research group composed of researchers from three of Montréal’s premier research institutions: McGill University, Université de Montréal and Concordia University. GÉPROM’s primary focus is to understand the function and role of membrane proteins in both health and disease. GÉPROM researchers work at the interface of Physiology, Biochemistry, Physics and Chemistry to study the biology of many membrane proteins including ligand- and voltage-gated ion-channels, membrane transporters as well as signaling by G-protein coupled receptors. GÉPROM membership has interest in understanding basic mechanisms of membrane protein function but also works in partnerships towards translation and innovation. GÉPROM is committed to the development of trainees in state-of-the-art techniques and technologies to provide a new generation of scientists with skillsets to build careers in both the private and public sector.
