Ion Channel Function and Regulation in the Nervous System

Lily Jan studies the development and function of the nervous system. More specifically, Jan and her team are interested in the function and regulation of potassium channels and calcium-activated chloride channels, and the contribution of channel modulation to the assembly and plasticity of functional neuronal circuits. The team applies biophysical, biochemical, and cell biological approaches to their studies. Ultimately, they aim to learn how these channels are targeted to specific subcellular compartments of a neuron, how they respond dynamically to neuronal activity, and how they modulate neuronal signaling.
