Crystal Archer, Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry
The Shapiro Lab is focused on the identification of the relevant signaling molecules in modulation of ion channels and the understanding of the precise mechanisms they use. In particular, we are interested in KCNQ potassium channels. I am studying 1) the biochemical and molecular interactions between PIP2, Calmodulin and their binding affinities on KCNQ channels, and 2) the role role of KCNQ channels in airway.
