Our vision

We address fundamental scientific questions pertaining to the molecular mechanism and regulation of transmembrane transporters, essential for central metabolic pathways. We are interested in proton-driven uptake of hormones, sugars and sterols in plants.
Transmembrane transport proteins are essential for a broad range of physiological processes, including growth and survival in eukaryotes. An improved understanding of the molecular underpinnings of these uptake systems has tremendous potential to address challenges in health, green transition and biodiversity.

We use a combination of structural, biochemical and biophysical approaches to characterize fundamental transporter properties. This creates a foundation to predict and augment transport properties.

We are located at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Aarhus University. The group is an international research team with diverse scientific backgrounds. We are always looking for postdocs, PhD students and Master students. If you find our work interesting and want to join us, please contact Bjørn Panyella Pedersen.
