Congratulations to Webster Centre Steering Committee member, Professor Kurt Krause, who received Catalyst Seeding funding from Royal Society Te Apãrangi of New Zealand to target membrane proteins in mycobacteria to cure tuberculosis.  It is for a research collaboration with Professors Greg Cook (Department of Microbiology and Immunology) and Hartmut Michel (Max Plank institute of Biophysics, Frankfurt), a nobel laureate and expert in determining the crystal structure of membrane proteins.   The funding starts in October 2017 to support exchange between Germany and New Zealand in support of a Marsden grant.
