About Chen Zhao
Dr. Zhao’s team is dedicated to deciphering the molecular mechanisms by which membrane proteins transduce signals at the cell membrane. By combining atomic structures determined by cryo-EM, with functional analyses such as electrophysiology, calcium imaging, and fluorescent microscopy, Dr. Zhao’s team aims to understand how the selectivity, specificity, and regulations are achieved for membrane signaling. Dr. Zhao’s team is particularly interested in expanding a newly developed method to visualize membrane protein structures in the cell membrane environment.
