Thomas Günther-Pomorski

Senior groupleader

Thomas Günther-Pomorski is senior groupleader at the PUMPkin Centre and associate professor at the Department of Plant Biology and Biotechnology - Section for Transport Biology at the University of Copenhagen.

The research group of Thomas Günther-Pomorski is interested in the mechanisms of intracellular lipid transport and membrane biogenesis. In particular, they have focused their work on mechanisms of the protein-mediated translocation of lipids across cellular membranes and their intracellular transport to distinct organelles as well as the physiological relevance and function of the protein-mediated lipid transport. They have developed a variety of biophysical methods to study those transport processes and established various protocols to synthesize specific lipid probes. They are currently working on the identification and characterization of lipid-transporting proteins (lipid flippases).
