Research Interest:

Membrane proteins constitute ~30% of all eukaryotic proteins and play crucial roles in many aspects of cell function. The long-term goal of our research is to understand the mechanisms of solute/cation symport. Currently, we are studying cation-coupled bacterial and human transporters by utilizing an integrated approach including X-ray crystallography, ligand binding thermodynamics, genetic engineering, and many other biochemical & biophysical analyses.
