Membrane Biology Research Group

Closeup of membraneFaculty in the Department of Physiology are internationally recognized for their research into the cellular and molecular aspects of membrane physiology. Understanding the function of ion channels, transporters and pumps, as well as structural proteins and cell adhesion molecules, lends insight into a variety of physiological processes. Researchers are attempting to understand how membranes maintain chemical gradients, regulate excitability, sustain muscle contraction and mediate signal transduction.
