Dopamine receptors are found in the surface membranes of neurones in the central nervous system. They are involved with motivation, pleasure, cognition, memory, learning, and other critical neurological functions. Their failure typically results in neuropsychiatric disorders such as Tourette’s syndrome, schizophrenia and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. In this project, we aim to produce the dopamine receptor D2L in artificial membranes and deliver it to cells for therapeutic implantation. This involves the use of state-of-the-art nanosecond pulse electroporation, which has proven successful in the delivery of a variety of biomolecules to cells.   Contact person: Prof.Dr.Eva-Kathrin Ehmoser
