Hanne Poulsen's lab
In the group, we study membrane proteins important for neuronal signaling and transport in order to understand their basic mechanisms and the physiological consequences it has if they do not function optimally.
We use electrophysiological methods to study membrane proteins that produce a current when active, including voltage-clamp fluorometry, where protein movements are correlated with protein activity with millisecond resolution. In addition to the electrophysiological techniques, we use general molecular biology techniques (cloning, Western blotting, cell culture work, cellular/slice staining), and we will be performing a number of motor and sensory tests on the mouse model.
