At the PROtein folding and Ligand INteraction Core facility (ProLinC) at Linköping University we aim to help researchers who want to characterize shape and structure, stability and binding of biomolecules such as proteins, DNA, carbohydrates, lipids and drug candidates.

Utilising our diverse instrumentation we can enable internal and external users to easily use complementary techniques for a full investigation of the properties of their biomolecular targets. In a user-based manner, we will assist with experimental design, choice of best technique/techniques to answer the question-at-hand, assist in running the experiment, evaluate the data, or train the user to independently perform all steps of the investigation.

  • SMEs can get extra support via SMILE.
  • ProLinC is part of the MOSBRI EU-program for molecular biophysics.

Chemists aim to disrupt cancer-related protein

How can we understand a protein when it is never still, but constantly changes shape? This is one of the challenges for LiU researchers who are studying the cancer-related protein MYC.

Researchers to gain access to high-quality modern labs

Researchers in biomedicine and biotechnology have now completely new opportunities for access to specialised equipment at some of the best facilities. LiU is one of the 13 nodes in MOSBRI, a European research infrastructure for molecular biophysics.

ProLinC part of EU-program for molecular biophysics

The European Union has awarded a 5 M€ infrastructure grant to the MOSBRI project. ProLinC, LiUs core facility for protein research, is a major part of it.
