Receptor structure and function

Research

The research group studies the functional and structural properties of transport across biological membranes. In particular, how membrane-associated receptors recognize and internalize ligands by endocytosis. Current research is focused on the hemoglobin scavenging system, where free hemoglobin is removed from the blood stream in order to prevent oxidative tissue damage.
