Lab information

I am an assistant professor in Dr. Hisayoshi Hayashi's lab. We use Ussing chambers to investigate the electrophysiological parameters of epithelial membranes. Using Ussing chambers, we measure conductance, short-circuit current across membranes, nutrient uptake, and dilution potential. With these techniques transcellular and paracellular ion transport can be evaluated.

Research focus

tight junctions, epithelial transport, small intestine, cecum, large intestine, paracellular transport
