Lorigan Lab: Structure and Function of KCNE1 and KCNQ1

A group of students poses with equipment they use in the lab. Chemistry and biochemistry professor Dr. Gary Lorigan and his team study the structure of proteins implicated in long QT syndrom, a cardiac disorder.  Pictured are (from left to right): graduate student Andrew Craig, postdoctoral research Dr. Indra Dev Sahu, and graduate students Lauren Bottorf, Dan Drew and Afu Zhang.
Chemistry and biochemistry professor Dr. Gary Lorigan and his team are studying the structure of two proteins implicated in long QT syndrome, a cardiac disorder.  They hope that by relating structure to function they will enable translational researchers to develop treatments for long QT and other arrhythmias.  Read more.
