Research Summary:
Projects in our laboratory are focused on the identification of novel mechanisms involved in regulation of dopamine neurotransmission in the brain. In particular we are interested in the regulation of dopamine transporter (DAT) an integral membrane protein vital for regulation of synaptic dopamine. Work in our laboratory is devoted to understanding the details of DAT regulation, trafficking, the pharmacological modulation of the transporter and how this is all integrated into the broader context of normal dopamine signaling and the pathogenesis of addiction, neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders.
