PI: Klaus Groschner
Focus: Structure-function relations in ion channels with focus on regulatory lipidation and lipid-gating mechanisms. High precision control of ion channel function by photopharmacology and chemo-optogenetics. Calcium signaling within plasma membrane micro/nanojunctions.
Network: The Groschner Lab is part of the “Signaling Research“ field within the Gottfried Schatz Research Center and collaborates tightly with the groups of Wolfgang Graier and Roland Malli on ion channel signaling topics as well as with Tobias Madl and Gerd Leitinger on aspects of Structural Biology and Cellular Ultrastructure analysis. Key national/international project partners are listed in the project descriptions below.
