Dr S B Hladky - Group leader
Ion transport at the blood brain barrier, pH regulation, multidrug-resistance transporters in red blood cells and chloroquine accumulation by malaria parasites (Plasmodium falciparum).
Current work is centred on three themes:
- characterisation of ion transport in brain endothelial cells and its relation to the normal secretion of brain interstitial fluid and to the formation and resolution of brain oedema
- the function and roles of mutlidrug-resistance transporters in red blood cells
- chloroquine uptake by the malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum...
