About Us

Our team of scientists has come together to investigate the biology of excitable cells in both the heart and the brain. In this effort, we focus on understanding the biophysical properties of calcium channels and the complex signaling cascade that calcium ions orchestrate within neurons and cardiomyocytes. Dysfunctions in calcium processing in these cell types can contribute to disorders ranging from cardiac arrhythmias to schizophrenia. Located within the Department of Physiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, we are currently engaged in projects using electrophysiological recording, patient-derived IPSCs, brain organoids, calcium imaging, and more, in the pursuit of a more complete understanding of the role calcium dynamics play in health and disease.
