Lipsa Rani Panda

PhD Student

I am a PhD student at the University of Bern, working in Abriel’s lab on a project funded by the SNSF. My Master’s degree in Molecular Biology focused on producing recombinant proteins to target cardiac ion channels.

In my PhD, I am focusing on understanding how Nav1.5 interacts with itself and other cardiac ion channels like TRPM4 and the factors that determine their co-regulation and dimerization. To do this, I will use molecular and cell biology techniques and conduct single-channel electrophysiological recordings to study the Na+ channels.

I love painting, visiting museums and exploring new places in my free time.
