Channels and Transporters
The course teaches students how vast majority of chronic diseases can be related to abnormal structure or function of one or more membrane transport proteins; research within the channels and transporters group spans the molecular structure, function and regulation of these important proteins, as well as their pharmacology and role in disease.
