About Kristina Hedfalk


My research focuses on integral membrane proteins; their structure, function and regulation with a special focus on aquaporins (water channels in the cellular membrane of all living species). A certain interest in also directed towards an increased understanding of the production of membrane bound proteins in order to minimize the well known bottle neck limiting detailed studies of eukaryotic membrane proteins in particular.

Research group: Jessica Glas (PhD student), Johanna Landén (BSc student), Linnéa Gröndahl (BSc student), Nathalie Shehadeh (MSc student)
