Anne-Marie Murat, a research assistant in Dr. Kargol’s Electrophysiology Lab, has been accepted to the LSU Shreveport Medical School. Anne-Marie is a 2016 graduate in Biological Sciences from St. Louis University, Loyola’s sister Jesuit school. A native of New Orleans, Anne-Marie, has worked during 2016-17 academic year as a research assistant in electrophysiology lab in the Physics Department at Loyola. She has learned the patch-clamping technique used to study kinetics of ion channels in cellular membranes, and conducted experiments on conductance hysteresis in ion channels as well as the effect of polar and non-polar nanoparticles on kinetics of voltage-gated sodium and potassium channels. Anne-Marie will begin her medical studies in the Fall 2017.
