Hanne Poulsen is team leader at DANDRITE and assistant professor at Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics. Hanne Poulsen's field of expertise is electrophysiology of electrogenic transporters and ion channels. She is also establishing voltage-clamp flourometry based on incorporation of unnatural amino acids through genetic code expansion. Her research topics include the sodium-potassium pump and transient receptor potential (TRP) channels. Hanne Poulsen was the recipient of the 2014 Lundbeck Foundation Fellowship award at DKK 10 million for a five-year period.

My project aims at describing the dynamics of the structural rearrangements of glutamate NMDA receptor through different states. To this end, I will use voltage-clamp fluorimetry, inserting a fluorescent amino acid at various sites of the receptor. Ultimately, this study will provide a novel means of understanding the mechanisms that govern NMDA…
