Anna Moroni is a professor of Plant Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Milan, Italy. She works on ion channels, a class of membrane proteins that control cell excitability and signal transduction. She engineers synthetic channels that respond to light and other stimuli by combining protein modules from viruses and plants. She is presently investigating the possibility to gate ion channels remotely.
