Casper Kornbech Larsen is a postdoc in team 14 “Genetic mechanisms of aldosterone related disorders” at the Paris Cardiovascular Research Center. He is currently working on developing methods to isolate DNA and RNA from circulating extracellular vesicles for use in detection of primary aldosteronism

He has studied biology at Aarhus University (Denmark) and received his Master Degree in 2011 and his PhD in 2015 from the Institute of Biomedicine at Aarhus University. The topic of his Master project was to explain why erythrocytes from ball pythons (python regius) are resistant to haemolysis by the poreforming toxin α-hemolysin from E. coli. In his PhD project, he studied the effect of ablation of the KCNMB2gene on renal and colonic potassium excretion in a mouse model. He joined the team of Maria-Christina Zennaro in April 2016.



Scientific Coordinator: Dr Maria -Christina Zennaro, Head of INSERM U970 team 14: Genetic mechanisms of aldosterone-related disorders.
