  • Research

  • The goal of our research is to understand the molecular mechanism of membrane proteins. We use biophysical techniques, such as imaging and spectroscopy, to temporally map proteins on the plasma membrane of living cells and model membrane systems. We are particularly interested in how membrane shape can control protein sorting and function. We focus on proteins that facilitate membrane fusion (SNARE proteins), recognize apoptotic cells for removal (Complement proteins), and proteins that regulate the flow of chemicals across the plasma membrane (P-glycoprotein).
