Research Interest

My main interest is in epithelial ion transport. I have studied a variety of epithelial systems, including the classic frog skin model, mammalian airway and gastrointestinal systems. I am interested in characterizing the various types of ion transporters and channels using electrophysiological, immunocytochemistry and RNA expression (in situ hybridization) techniques. I am interested in the hormonal and cellular regulation of the various transporters and channels.
