Short bio

Igor Tascón is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Structural Biology of Disease Mechanisms research group. His research focuses on unraveling the mechanisms of solute transport across biological membranes involved in human disease. Igor is an expert in membrane protein structural biology. Before joining the IBF in 2019, he was a postdoctoral fellow for four years at Goethe Frankfurt University working on the function and structure of K+ transporters, and investigating the use of membrane-mimicking tools to stabilize membrane proteins. He received his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, a Master of Science in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine, and a PhD in Biochemistry at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).
