Research Overview

My five complementary research interests are in the general areas of molecular physiology, functional genomics and proteomics and are:

a) Regulation and molecular characterization of alveolar ion channels in the developing lung (live cell imaging, developmental biology and electrophysiology);
b) Molecular physiology of O2 sensing in the human lung and nervous system (K2P KCa and P2X channels);
c) Transcriptional and translational control of functional expression of human ion channel genes by environmental cues (gene chip arrays and promoter cloning/characterisation);
d) Identification of cellular O2 sensors and novel protein partners of O2 sensing ion channels (proteomics and loss-of-function approaches)
e) Human stem cell fate determination and function.
