PACELAB - MOLECULAR PHYSIOLOGY AND NEUROBIOLOGY  

 

Our "PaceLab" is involved in several projects, the main one focused on detailed investigation of the "funny" (cardiac pacemaker) channel, which we first described in 1979, and its diverse functions in heart and brain. We use several different protocols (single cell, single channel, native and stem cells, iPS cells, heterologous expression, transgenic mice) using most advanced in vitro and in vivo techniques such as cell electrophysiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, immunofluorescence, cell sorting, recombinant DNA, mouse telemetry and several other techniques.
