Stefanie Babilon (nee Nagel)

Summer intern, June-August 2010, Pharmacology

Steffi received her MS from Leipzig University, Germany, and is currently a graduate student in the lab of our collaborator Dr. Annette Beck-Sickinger.

Research Description

She is focusing on arrestin interactions with neuropeptide Y receptors, using arrestin mutants with enhanced and reduced ability to bind receptors, as well as receptor mutants with modified affinity for arrestin proteins.
