We study several areas that focus on cell membrane function. This includes activation, and in-membrane dynamics of BCl-2 family proteins, the critical arbiters of cell death in humans, pore forming antimicrobial peptides, membrane repair, perflurocarbon nano-delivery systems, malaria parasite host/cell interactions. Recently we have initated a project on collagen mineralization during bone formation and repair in humans.
