Identify Functional Modulators Of Ionotropic Neurotransmitter Receptors In Brain
Regulation of synaptic transmission is critical component to human health, and Dr. Susumu Tomita studies Ion Channel functionality that is at the heart of these neural circuitry. His lab focuses on characterizing ion channels by utilizing transmembrane ORF collections to express proteins, then screening for functional modulators of ionotropic neurotransmitter receptors.
