Research interests
In our laboratory we follow two main research directions:
  • to investigate the physiological role of voltage gated calcium channels in endocrine hormone release (pancreas, adrenal glands) and
  • to understand the biophysical properties of L-type calcium channels and their modulation.
To answer our scientific questions we use a combination of genetically modified mouse models, biophysical methods (voltage-clamp, current-clamp, exocytosis measurements, structure modelling, calcium imaging), and biochemical techniques (molecular biology, protein quantification, ELISA, immunofluorescence).
