Liver Metabolism Group - Group Leader
This group's current research is focused on defining the basic molecular mechanisms that control the activation and regulation of store-operated Ca2+ channels and transient receptor potential (TRP) channels in non- excitable cells and excitable cells, establishing the role of these channels in oxygen sensing, mechanosensation, and generating responses to hormones and neurotransmitters.
