Welcome to the Colbran Lab

We focus on the regulation and role of Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) in normal tissues and in a variety of diseases, including Angelman Syndrome, Parkinson's Disease and cardiac diseases.  Our lab uses  biochemical, molecular and genetic approaches to manipulate signaling mechanisms in vivo and in cultured mammalian cells.  Cell imaging, electrophysiological and behavioral assays are then used to assess the impact of the manipulations on CaMKII function in normal tissue and in disease models.     

We hope you will use this link (Research details) to find out more about what we are doing and why we think it is important, and browse the links at the left to find out more about us. 

There are often opportunities for talented people to join the Colbran lab: Email Roger if you would like more information.
