Biomedicine Seminar: Hanne Bjerregaard Møller: Water balance – from kidney to colon

26.08.2019 | Lisbeth Heilesen

Dato ons 04 sep
Tid 12:00 13:00
Sted Fysiologisk lecture hall (building 1162-013)

Abstract: 

My research area is centered on regulation of water and ion transport across epithelia in the kidney and colon. Both are organs where dysregulation of transport can cause water/electrolyte imbalances. I will present some of our findings on regulation of aquaporin-2 (AQP2) in the kidney via posttranslational modifications and the potential relevance for these modifications in diseases such as nephrogenic diabetes insipidus. I will also share my interest in understanding why excess amounts of bile acids in the intestinal lumen causes diarrhea during the condition bile acid malabsorption and present some of our data in this area.

 

Venue: 

The seminar will be held at 12:00 pm in the Fysiologisk lecture hall (building 1162-013).

Talks will be 45 min in duration, followed by 15 minutes of discussion.
