Students in the group



Lise Skarstein (Aug 2023 – present)
Forskerlinjestudent (the Medical Student Research Program) at UiB 

Investigating neurobiological markers using fMRI for treatment response to concentrated exposure treatment in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and general anxiety disorders. 


Risha Chowdhury (Aug 2023 – present)
Forskerlinjestudent (the Medical Student Research Program) at UiB 

Investigating the molecular effects of CMT-linked missense mutations on GDAP1 and obtaining new structural and functional data on CNPase. 




Mar Trinidad Fernandez (Feb 2023 – present)
ERASMUS+ student from Spain (Universitat de Barcelona) 

Explore the selective but indirect inhibition of NaV1.7, via regulation of CRMP2 using small-molecule compounds, aiming for a new therapeutic approach for chronic pain. For this, I will be following Lisa Reinmuth's research. 


Sarah Weber (Sep 2022 – Dec 2022)
ERASMUS+ student from Germany (University of Jena)


Sofie Breisnes Wormdahl (Aug 2022 – present)
Master student of molecular biology at UiB

Investigate possible changes in the interaction between tyrosine hydroxylase and 14-3-3 in response to hyperoxia and simulated diving.


Aiza Ashfaq (Aug 2022 – Jun 2023)
Master student of biomedical sciences at UiB


José Miguel Godoy Muñoz (Aug 2022 – Jun 2023)​
ERASMUS+ student from Spain (Universidad de Extremadura)

Nanobody-aided structural study of activity-regulated cytoskeleton-associated protein (Arc), a multifunctional regulator of synaptic plasticity.


Lasse Neset (May 2022 – Jun 2023)
Master student of biomedical sciences at UiB

Structural and functional studies of activity-regulated cytoskeleton-associated (Arc) protein, using high-affinity nanobodies.


Students of the neurotargeting group

Lucia Wagner (Sep 2021 – Jun 2022​)
Fulbright student from US (St. Olaf College) ​

Investigating the effects of electroconvulsive therapy on the brain's motor coordination and the blood-brain barrier.


Tone Hestad Valland (Sep 2021 – Jun 2022​)
Pharmacy student at UiB

She tests different unique natural compounds to see if they can be new drug candidates based on the interaction with the protein Annexin A2.  


Elma Cerimagic (Sep 2021 – Jun 2022​)
Pharmacy student at UiB   ​

She will be looking at eight different natural compounds to see how they affect cell viability, wound healing and the expression of annexin A2 in PC12 cells.


Inger-Lise Fleisje (Sep 2021 – Jun 2022)​
Pharmacy student at UiB


Marcel Schröder (Sep 2021 – Feb 2022)
ERASMUS+ student from Germany (University of Lübeck)  ​

Biochemical and structural characterization of an interaction between an ultra-high affinity camelid nanobody and an abundant myelin enzyme of the central nervous system.


José Miguel Godoy Muñoz (Aug 2021 – Oct 2021)​
ERASMUS+ student from Spain (Universidad de Extremadura)

Planning, execution, and analysis of routine experiments related to the production and characterisation of recombinant myelin proteins (quality assessments, binding assays, structural determinations).
