A key to understanding KRAS-driven cancers and the role of mutant RAS proteins and to discover new therapeutic possibilities is to better understand how RAS behaves on the cell membrane. Investigating RAS in the context of membranes is somewhat challenging using conventional computational or experimental techniques. In a partnership with…
