"Harnessing native membrane protein complexes to illuminate architecture and mechanism of neurotransmission and mechanosensory transduction"

Dr. Eric Gouaux is interested in the molecular mechanism of signal transduction at the chemical synapses of the nervous system and the molecular underpinnings of mechanosensory transduction in the auditory and vestibular systems. Using biochemical, biophysical, and electrophysiological methods, and via the development of new methods and molecular tools, Gouaux and his team investigate the atomic structure and biological function of synaptic receptors and transporters, as well as mechanosensory ion channels. Their work provides insight into the molecular working of the nervous system and lays the foundation for the development of new therapeutic agents.
