Personal profile

University profile

As a neuroscientist, Dr. Elena Petroff is interested in how brain cells function and how this activity is regulated in physiological and pathophysiological conditions. Ion channel activity is fundamental in the regulation of cell function, from basic membrane transport to complex processes such as signaling, excitability, secretion and cell division. Her previous work has identified a novel mechanism of interaction and mutual regulation by two classes of neuronal and glial ion channels, acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) and potassium channels. Coordination of ion channel activity and ion channel interaction is an emerging field important for both understanding basic biology and for identifying new pharmacological targets.
