Elena Seiradake

Fellow & Tutor in Biochemistry; Professor in Molecular Biology
Department of Biochemistry

Elena joined the Oxford University Biochemistry Department in 2014 as an independent group leader to study the structure and function of cell surface receptors in neural and vascular development.

A major breakthrough in her laboratory revealed that the adhesion GPCR ‘Latrophilin’ forms large structured assemblies in the presence of two other cell surface receptors ‘FLRT’ and ‘Unc5’. Depending on the cellular context, distinct super-complexes with unique functional properties are formed. Elena’s long-term aim is to understand the functions of distinct receptor-ligand complexes through a detailed knowledge of their structures and signalling properties during neural and vascular development of the brain.
