Molecular Cardiology and Membrane Proteins
Blegdamsvej 3, 2200 København N, 7.9, Building: 75
I lead a Membrane Protein Structural Biology Group located at the Department of Biomedical Sciences at University of Copenhagen, and at the Department of Experimental Medical Science at Lund University. We work on structural and functional characterization of membrane proteins that are essential for human health and highly attractive targets in the treatment of disease.
The overarching aim is to reveal the molecular principles and determinants of transport processes across cellular membranes for these proteins. To this end, we use a number of complementary techniques centered on X-ray crystallography to study structure-function-disease relationships of membrane proteins.
Primary fields of research
A molecular understanding of:
- Neurological disease
- Heart and vascular disease
We work on for example P-type ATPases and ion(dys)homeostasis
