Kim van Maldegem

Associate member, University of Gothenburg


Kim is a PhD student at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden working on ion channels and transporters involved in the regulation of photosynthesis. The main research focus of my project is the generation and characterization of Arabidopsis thaliana and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii loss of function and overexpression mutants. I characterise the channels and transporters using chlorophyll fluorescence, heterologous protein production, purification and other molecular biology methods.
