New Team Leader Magnus Kjærgaard - Neurotransmitter receptors and effective concentrations in signalling complexes

Magnus Kjærgaard is appointed Team Leader at DANDRITE per 15 March 2016, as an expert in the use of single molecule fluorescence techniques and NMR spectroscopy. He will use these techniques to study the structural dynamics the intra-cellular domains of glutamate receptors and its associated signalling complexes. He is investigating how the physical association of biomolecules affects signalling pathways, and with his research he aims to contribute to our understanding of how these proteins are involved in learning and memory. Magnus Kjærgaard is the recipient of the Villum Fonden's Young Investigator Programme 2016 grant of 5 million DKK.
