Fang Zheng, Ph.D. (Principal Investigator)
My laboratory studies the regulation of glutamate receptors, an important family of neurotransmitter receptors. Glutamate receptors are involved in multiple neurological diseases, such as stroke-induced paralysis and cognitive dysfunction, epilepsy, and perhaps the debilitating consequences of Alzheimer’s disease, the neurological correlates of schizophrenia and ALS.

Michael received his undergraduate degree from Ouachita Baptist University. His research interests are in determining the functions of canonical transient receptor potential channel 3 (TRPC3) in neurovascular coupling and stroke-induced neural damage.
