Edward Ziff, Ph.D.

The Ziff lab studies the molecular mechanisms which regulate synaptic transmission at excitatory synapses. They focus on two ion channels, the AMPA and the NMDA type glutamate receptors.They have cloned proteins which associate with the cytoplasmic tail of the GluR2 AMPA type glutamate receptor subunit and are studying the role of these binding factors in receptor control.
