Pharmacological Regulation Of The Function Of Glutamate Tranporters

Grant number: 509319 | Funding period: 2008 - 2010



Dysfunction of glutamate transport is implicated in the pathology of neurodegenerative conditions. Our aim is to understand how the molecules responsible for glutamate transport are organized on the cell surface and how their movement within cells regulates transporter activity. Advances of this type will indicate new pharmacological and molecular biological strategies for the management of brain disorders.
