Research Interests

   Membrane proteins such as ion channels and transporters play a crucial role in various cell signaling processes, and represent more than half of targets for commercially available drugs. Accordingly, high-resolution 3D structures of membrane proteins are of great interest at the level of both basic science and drug discovery research.

   The Hattori Lab is interested in atomic-level understanding of the molecular mechanism of membrane proteins, particularly of those associated with human diseases. To achieve these goals, we employ X-ray crystallography to obtain 3D structures of our target membrane proteins, and then conduct structure-guided mutational analysis by a combination of electrophysiological and biochemical approaches. Open postdoc and student positions are currently available.
