Molecular Cardiology and Membrane Proteins
Blegdamsvej 3, 2200 København N, Mærsk Tårnet 7.9, Building: 87
I am a biotechnologist with a PhD degree in Health Sciences and a passionate protein scientist. I am interested in unveiling the molecular mechanisms of action and pharmacological modulation of clinically relevant human membrane proteins (MPs) and their complexes.
I am working with production and structure-function investigation of several classes of MPs, including aquaglyceroporins, neurotransmitter, metal and nutrient transporters. I have also contributed to development of several detergents, and characterized compounds displaying anti-cancer, mood-stabilizing and memory-preserving properties.
Methodologically, I use a wide range of state-of-the-art structural biology techniques, and biochemical assays used in drug and protein characterization.
