PhD student Caroline Neumann awarded Lundbeck Foundation fellowship

PhD student Caroline Neumann in Poul Nissen’s research group has been awarded a Lundbeck Foundation fellowship to support her PhD studies for 4 years. Her project focuses on studying the substrate specificity of MhsT, a bacterial homologue of the human GABA transporter GAT1 and non-polar amino acid transporters SLC6A18 and SLC6A19, by structure determination of various protein-substrate complexes and their validation by functional studies of mutant forms of MhsT. Later on, in her second project, she will focus on structural investigations of the eukaryotic co-transporter NKCC1.
