Frank Bosmans Lab

  • Research in the Bosmans Lab seeks to address fundamental questions regarding the identities of the components of the voltage-activated sodium (Nav) channel signaling complex and to resolve their mechanisms of action at the molecular level. Our research combines several techniques including molecular biology, electrophysiology, genetics and biochemistry. Successful completion of these goals will reveal key elements in the Nav channel signaling complex, help define Nav channel function in normal and pathological states, and may offer novel strategies for developing therapeutic drugs.

    Research Areas: biochemistry, electrical signaling, electrophysiology, sodium channels, Nav channels, genomics, drugs, molecular biology
