Na,K-ATPase regulation and control of aqueous humor secretion; role of Na,K-ATPase alpha 2 isoform in optic nerve astrocytes, Src kinase effects on lens Na,K-ATPase.

Neurophysiology, visual processing, synaptic physiology, inhibition.

My research focuses around ocular anterior and posterior segment physiology, pharmacology and cell biology, particularly with regard to aqueous humor secretion and glaucoma. My specific interests are: 1. Mechanism of aqueous humor secretion 2. Identification, functional characterization and regulation of transport proteins involved in aqueous humor secretion. 3. Pathophysiology of retina in relation to glaucoma.
