Abstract

The National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) TransCure, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the University of Bern, was active from 2010 to 2022. It provided unique research and educational framework in the membrane transporter and ion channel field. Thanks to an interdisciplinary approach comprising physiology, structural biology, and chemistry, in parallel to a rich offer in complementary areas such as education and technology transfer, the network achieved outstanding scientific results and contributed to the education of young scientists. In this review, we present the main features and milestones of the NCCR TransCure.
