Research Interest

The major focus of my work is the modulation of ion channels and how these relate to health and disease. This has included studying the effects of neurosteroids on the serotonergic system with a focus on the GABAA receptor, as well as the gaseous transmitters such as hydrogen sulfide on the TRP channels.

My current project aims to address the fundamental need to understand how the genetic differences seen in patients with MH, affects the entry and regulation systems of intracellular calcium in skeletal myocytes.
