COMPARE are pleased to announce that we signed a Collaboration Agreement on 12 April 2018 with the Centre for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), Campinas, Brazil at the Brazilian Embassy in London.
The agreement will enable COMPARE to access very specialist equipment dedicated to the study of membrane proteins, as well as providing access to a library of natural products that is only available in Brazil.
The specialist equipment includes one of the first fourth-generation synchrotron light sources in the world (Sirius) and two cyro-electron microscopes
In the context of the Brazil-UK Year of Science & Innovation, this afternoon the Embassy proudly hosted the signing ceremony of the Collaboration Agreement between @CNPEM (Centre for Research in Energy and Materials) and @COMPARE_UoBUoN (Centre of Membrane Proteins and Receptors)
