Ion channels and transporters mediate the transmembrane passage of ions across biological membranes. They establish concentration gradients, permit diffusion of ions along such concentration gradients and fulfill crucial roles in electrical signaling and in solute transport in living cells. We employ molecular dynamics simulations to describe channel and transport function at atomic resolution. We test emerging functional concepts by comparing results from in-silico mutagenesis with in-vitro mutagenesis and cellular electrophysiology and fluorescence spectroscopy.

Online registration is mandatory and all places are subject to availability; you will receive an email confirmation once your place on the seminar is reserved. This lab visit will be offered twice, from 9:15am to 10:00 and from 10:15am to 11:00am. When you register, please pay attention to the starting time.

This Labs! event is offered in collaboration with the IFF Spring School.
