About Stephan Kellenberger

Stephan Kellenberger obtained his PhD from the University of Bern for his research on GABAA receptor function carried out in the laboratory of Erwin Sigel. During his post-doctoral training with W.A. Catterall at the University of Washington, Seattle, he investigated the molecular mechanisms of voltage-gated sodium channel inactivation. He joined the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology of the UNIL in 1997 to investigate with Laurent Schild the epithelial sodium channel. A few years later he started his own line of research on the function of acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs). His team applies approaches of molecular and cellular biology and electrophysiology to explore the function of ASICs on the molecular and cellular level.
