King-Wai Yau Laboratory

  • The King-Wai Yau Laboratory is interested in the area of sensory transduction. Specifically, we study visual and olfactory transductions, which are the processes by which the senses of vision and olfaction are initiated. Rods and cones are the retinal photoreceptors that absorb light for initiating image vision. We are studying the cellular and molecular details underlying rod and cone phototransduction.

    Research Areas: phototransduction, vision, sensory transduction, olfactory system
