Research Description

I study the expression pattern of TRP (Transient Receptor Potential) channels in the developing chick embryo. These channels are cation specific and can be activated by ligands, stretch, temperature, ions themselves, and membrane voltage. Determining their expression in a developmental model will help clarify their role in epithelial remodeling events and potentially clarify their role in disease states.
