Filip van Petegem Awarded CSMB New Investigator Award

vanpetegem.filipCanadian Society for Molecular Biosciences, (CMSB) awards Filip van Petegem CSMB New Investigator Award. Filip’s cutting-edge structural studies have provided fundamental insights into our understanding of integral membrane proteins, including ryanodine receptors and voltage-gated sodium channels. His structure function studies comparing wildtype and disease mutant forms of membrane proteins have provided valuable insight into a large number of genetic diseases as well as fundamental, mechanistic understandings of ion channel functions.
