  • Our Research

    We have multiple collaborations with other academic groups and industrial partners, utilizing our expertise in electrophysiology, single molecule biophysics and animal physiology. Please contact cnichols@wustl.edu to discuss. Dr Nichols is also the Director of CIMED which offers multiple platforms in electrophysiology and live cell imaging through the LCIF that are dedicated to supporting collaborative work.

    Currently we are interested in recruiting individuals with broad interests in ion channel biophysics and biochemistry, and in channel physiology and pathology - from molecules to cells, to animals, to patients. As can be seen from individual research descriptions, individuals are encouraged to explore multiple approaches and to address projects that span multiple levels of biological sophistication.
