We are interested in the molecular function and pharmacology of membrane proteins called ligand-gated ion channels. They regulate electrical excitability in e.g. neuronal tissues by allowing ions to cross cell membranes in response to the binding of neurotransmitters. Their dysfunction is associated with numerous diseases, resulting in an increasing demand for new drugs targeting these fascinating molecules.
The floor plans are ready and the renovations of the lab space are about to start – very exciting times for the lab and its host, the Centre for Biopharmaceuticals.
WE NEED A HAND,
We are always interested in hearing from highly motivated students and postdocs who may wish to join our team – check out more details here.
We employ a wide range of innovative technologies, such as non-canonical amino acids, protein splicing and spectroscopic approaches in combination with different electrophysiological methods to studyion channels.
Our lab is based in one of the most exciting cities around, thriving on bikes, food, drink and general happiness – get the facts here!
