Research Interests

An expert on mammalian copper and iron metabolism, Dr. Linder is currently focusing her research on mechanisms of copper transport in the period before and after birth, and on the intestinal absorption and storage of iron, using a broad variety of approaches, from cell culture models, transgenic mice and tracer radioisotopes, to isolation, sequencing and characterization of proteins, as well as si/shRNA manipulation of mRNA/protein expression.
