Maria Gourdon – new research engineer at LP3


I am very happy to join the Lund Protein Production Platform (LP3) team. Throughout my research career I have been working on structural and functional characterization of membrane proteins. I did my graduate studies in Gothenburg where I primarily investigated aquaporins (in particular overproduction and crystallization methods). I then moved to Århus, Denmark, studying Na,K-ATPases and became acquainted with low-resolution structure determination approaches. Leaving Århus, I started as a post-doc at Novo Nordisk in Copenhagen focusing on an ion-channel protein. My most recent employment was here at Lund University, at the Biochemistry department, working with membrane protein-membrane/soluble protein interactions in the structural biology group of Susanna Törnroth-Horsefield.

At LP3, I will now be responsible for the crystallization facility: maintenance, assisting users, etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in using the facility – we can then discuss how to best approach your target. See you around!

  1. Hej Maria!

    This is Paulina from Karin Lindkvist’s group. I wanted to ask you if there is someone at LP3 that has run a Thermal Shift Assay (DSF) before and who is good at interpreting the results.

    Best regards,
