Colin G. Nichols, PhD

Carl Cori Professor, Department of Cell Biology and Physiology
Director, Center for the Investigation of Membrane Excitability Diseases

Research Interests

Colin’s research spans from the molecular basis of potassium channel activity to human disease. His work on KATP channel activity led to the discovery of the mechanism of human neonatal diabetes and a revolution in therapy – affected children can now take once a day pills – even dissolved in milk – rather than traumatic, three times a day insulin injections.
