Research Summary:

The main focus of research at our lab is to understand how dopamine transporter (DAT) works and to identify its regulatory mechanisms. The major of my project is to understand whether σ1-R interacts with DAT and can regulate the biological properties of DAT. The project composed of three approaches: electrophysiological, morphological, and biochemical examines. I focus on electrophysiological and morphological studies.
