Development and use of rapid reaction techniques to understand protein-mediated reactions in health and disease CALS Impact Statement uri icon

abstract

  • We develop and use rapid reaction kinetic techniques so that we can study protein-mediated reactions in the nervous system. These reactions occur in the microsecond time range so the techniques we employ must be in this time range. These reactions are altered in certain diseases, such as epilepsy and Alzheimer`s, and by drug abuse.
