The Stephen Long Lab

Our laboratory uses a combination of structural and functional approaches to elucidate the mechanisms of eukaryotic ion channels and membrane-embedded enzymes. The proteins that we study have important biological roles and are implicated in diseases including cardiac arrhythmia, immune disorders, and cancer.
