NIMIGEAN LAB MEMBERS


CRINA NIMIGEAN
Associate Professor

Crina received her PhD in Physiology and Biophysics from Karl Magleby's lab at University of Miami. She did her postdoctoral work with Christopher Miller at Brandeis University. She established her research lab at University of California, Davis in 2005, before moving to Weill Cornell Medical School, New York, as part of the Anesthesiology, Physiology and Biophysics, and Biochemistry departments.

Paul
PAUL RIEGELHAUPT
Assistant Professor

Paul completed an MD/PhD program at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Myles Akabas' lab, studying the physiology of malarial transporters. He did medical residency in anesthesiology at the University of California San Francisco. While there, he also did postdoctoral work with Daniel Minor studying K2P potassium channels. He is now a junior faculty member in the Anesthesiology department at Weill Cornell and has continued studying the regulation and anesthetic modulation of K2P channels. [Pubmed Link]

XIAOLONG GAO
Postdoctoral Associate

Xiaolong obtained his PhD from Professor Tzyh-Chang Hwang's lab at the University of Missouri-Columbia where he specialized in electrophysiology of ion channels. By means of various biochemical and electrophysiological methods, his current work looks into structural and functional attributes of cyclic-nucleotide gated potassium channels. [Pubmed Link]

Jan
JAN RHEINBERGER
Postdoctoral Associate

Jan received his PhD from the ETH Zurich. At the Paul Scherrer Institute he was working in the group of Prof. Gebhard Schertler and Dr. Xiaodan Li on 2D-crystallization of membrane proteins including GPCRs and ion channels. Currently he is exploring gating mechanisms of ligand-gated ion channels using single particle electron microscopy. [Pubmed Link]

PHILIPP SCHMIDPETER
Postdoctoral Associate

Philipp received his PhD from the University of Bayreuth (Germany) where he analyzed the interplay between protein folding and protein function in the lab of Prof. Franz X. Schmid. He now works on the biophysical and functional characterization of ligand gated ion channels. Philipp also employs protein engineering to modify the allosteric regulation of ion channels.

Bee
NATTAKAN SUKOMON
Postdoctoral Associate

Yuan
YUAN XIE
Postdoctoral Associate

Yuan received her PhD from the Institute of Biophysics (Chinese Academy of Sciences). Her projects focused on membrane proteins involved in photosynthesis as well as soluble enzymes. She used x-ray crystallography to study the structure and function of these proteins. Yuan now is working on crystallographic studies on ligand gated ion channels. [Pubmed Link]
