I am studying glial-neurophysiology, specifically, the signaling mechanisms involved in neuro-glia communication mediated by ion channels and co-transporters during development and they way they regulate cellular differentiation. I am applying the knowledge of the deciphered neuro-glia signaling mechanism to understand the cause and discover new treatments for various patho-physiological conditions such as neuro-degenerative diseases, hypertension, diabetes, and stroke.
