The Lab

Mammalian Tissue Culture

The molecular biology lab contains specialized instrumentation including a Vision workstation for automated protein purification and a fluorescent plate reader for high-throughput screens of ion channel function in vivo using fluorescent dyes.

Recently, the group has adapted nonsense supression methods to express ion channels with unnatural amino acids in mammalian cells, including neurons. The lab has facilities for culturing and handling these various cell lines.
