      The purpose of this award was to enable the PI to establish a research program in the area of membrane structural and functional biology at The University of Limerick, Ireland. The bulk of the funding for this project was directed to equipping the lab at UL with X-ray and other biochemical/biophysical instrumentation, and to support a limited number of personnel. The University of Limerick does not have a strong tradition in fundamental research in the biosciences. The PI's charge is to contribute to getting such activity underway. His appointment at UL is strictly a research position and does not require teaching.
