Crina Nimigean

Crina Nimigean has B.S./M.S. degree in Physics from Bucharest University, Romania and a Ph.D. in Physiology and Biophysics from the University of Miami. After postdoctoral training at Brandeis University, Crina’s first faculty position was at the University of California at Davis. She moved her laboratory in 2008 to New York City at the Weill Cornell Medical College where she currently is a Professor jointly in the departments of Anesthesiology, and Physiology of Biophysics. Crina’s research is geared toward understanding how ion channel protein structure and mechanism interrelate at the molecular level to allow channels to elaborate various biological properties. The main focus of the lab is to elucidate gating, selectivity, ligand modulation, and lipid/membrane modulation in ion channels using a wide range of biophysical and structural techniques.
