Our laboratory focuses on the understanding of two fundamental biological processes that affect virtually every aspect of cellular physiology: calcium signaling and protein folding. Our research has implications for a number of human diseases including vascular disease such as heart attack, neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, and systemic diseases such as cancer.
