faculty_page_andersen_olafResearch in the Andersen lab is focused on the molecular mechanisms governing the function of membrane-spanning ion permeable channels. These questions are addressed using a combination of electrophysiological studies on ion channel function (and structure) and spectroscopic studies of channel structure, in conjunction with theoretical/computational studies on channel folding, ion permeation, and channel-bilayer interactions.
