Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interest has been focused on pharmacology and biophysics of ion channel functions, which are either activated by voltage changes or mediated by ligand receptor binding. Drugs of interest include, but not limited to, general anesthetics, local anesthestics, ethanol and drugs used to the treatment of Alzeheimer's diseases.
