Exchange graduate student from Leipzig University, Pharmacology
Lizzy received master’s degree in Biochemistry (specialization in
Biomedicine) in August 2013 from the University of Leipzig.
Since September 2013, Lizzy is a PhD student in the lab of Annette G. Beck-Sickinger at the University of Leipzig.
Lizzy is a PhD student in the lab of our collaborator Annette G. Beck-Sickinger at the University of Leipzig.
She is focusing on the arrestin recruitment to receptors of NPY family. These receptors are GPCRs binding neuropeptides. NPY receptors are involved in feeding behavior in humans and other mammals.
