Helle Damkier is an expert in water and solute transport of the choroid plexus. Her research group is devoted to understanding the role of water and solute transporters in the choroid plexus. Her group specifically investigates the role of membrane transporters involved in both the secretion and pH regulation of CSF by the choroid plexus. Using in vivo and in vitro methods, the groups specifically aims to define the role of acid-base transporters involved in CSF regulation in health and disease.
