The overall purpose of our research is to achieve insight into molecular, cellular and genetic processes responsible for synaptic signal transmission and how these processes can be modulated by drugs.
Our research concentrates on the neural and astrocytic mechanisms of local vascular regulation. We investigate cerebral blood flow control and blood-brain barrier properties under normal physiological conditions. We also study aging, stroke, and fast calcium waves.

Our research focuses on the structure-function relationship in neurotransmitter transporters. Specifically, how binding of ions and substrate couple to allosteric interactions network within the transporters, leading to the translocation of the ligand into the cell.
