Membrane proteins make up a quarter of the proteome of every living organism and participate in nearly every biological process. We are interested in the fascinating process of how these proteins get produced, fold, and assemble in cells. The questions we address are: How do proteins fold in the membranes of living cells? How do the dynamic features of unfolded proteins assist in this process? How do cellular factors recognize membrane proteins that failed to fold and need to be cleared? The lab combines biochemical, cell biology, genetic and computational tools.

<p>G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest gene family in the human genome. Their role is to translate chemical information into cellular responses, like olfactory processing, neuronal activity modulation, and hormone actions or regulating blood pressure among many. Their cellular effectors can range from various enzymes to ion channels. Interestingly, nature has designed the GPCR as a major target for many natural compounds and the pharmaceutical industry has focused its attention on designing various agonists and antagonists to treat various illnesses.

<p>In our research, we focus on the following aspects of beta cell function:</p>&#xD;
<li>The transcriptional mechanisms underlying the normal embryonic development of beta cells and the functioning of mature beta cells</li>&#xD;
<li>Manipulating pancreatic cellular identity: molecular mechanisms controlling exocrine to endocrine cell reprogramming</li>&#xD;
<li>Dissecting the signaling mechanism that permit&nbsp; beta cells to respond to modulators of insulin secretion, in particular long chain and shor
