Research Interests

Our group is interested in the mechanisms of salt and water transport across absorptive and secretory epithelial cells.  Our focus is on the biogenesis and quality control pathways that determine ion channel expression, trafficking and the mechanisms that govern channel density at the cell surface.  Our main interest concerns the CFTR anion channel, where myriad mutations produce the genetic disease, cystic fibrosis, via diverse cellular mechanisms.
