The Centre of Membrane Proteins and Receptors (COMPARE)

The Centre of Membrane Proteins and Receptors (COMPARE) is a unique cross-University Research Centre between the Universities of Birmingham and Nottingham aimed at investigating the mechanisms of cell communication in physiology and disease to develop innovative therapies for common conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes or cancer.

To achieve this goal, we bring together experts from multiple disciplines (Medicine, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Computer Science) to advance our understanding of disease mechanisms and drug action using a highly innovative multidisciplinary approach.

These efforts are supported by dedicated, state-of-the-art facilities, including our COMPARE Advanced Imaging Facility, which are open to internal and external researchers from both academia and industry.
