Congratulations to Saida Said for her new affiliation as Postdoc in Hanne Poulsens team

Saida will focus on studies concerning structural and functional mechanism of the GABA transporter subtype one by combining electrophysiological, fluorescence-based methods and unnatural amino acid mutagenesis. The role of the GABAergic system in mental disorders in general and in depression in particular is gaining momentum. Structural information about the GABA transporter and knowledge of how ligand and ion binding control conformational change can provide the basis for developing drugs that target it
