Projects: Ligand-gated ion channels

Emelia received her master’s degree from Uppsala University after completing her master’s thesis in the Erik Lindahl Lab during the first half of 2022. She returned to the same group after the summer, but now as a PhD student. Her research is mainly focused on testing the modulation of pentameric ligand-gated ion channels (pLGICs) by pharmacological drugs and other compounds using electrophysiology techniques. She is currently investigating the modulation of a bacterial pLGIC (sTeLIC) and a structurally similar eukaryotic relative (5-HT3A) by an amphetamine derivative and oocyte electrophysiology.
