Electrophysiology of ion channels and transporters

This theory & hands-on course will focus on protein-mediated ion transport across biological membranes. Particular attention will be given to protein reconstitution strategies and the use of Planar Lipid Bilayer versus Solid-supported membrane electrophysiology techniques. Ion transport will be monitored and selectivity, affinity and pKa profiles will be estimated. Students can bring their own samples whenever appropriate.


Instructor: Susana Andrade
3 days
Participants: 4 students
Location: Institute for Biochemistry (AG Andrade)


The course runs once during the winter semester, at a time to be agreed by the parts involved and once a minimum number of students raise interest in participating. If you want to participate in this course, contact your coordinator.
