Molecular and Cellular Physiology

Ion channels, ion transporters and receptors are critical for the generation, the propagation and the transmission of cellular signals. We use a combination of experimental and computational approaches to study the function of these proteins at the molecular level and to understand their contributions to cell and organ functions. Our work aims at understanding the role of ion channels, ion transporters and receptors under pathological conditions and at contributing to the development of novel therapeutic approaches for human diseases.
