Daniel Collins

Research Interests:

Membrane-bound chloride ion channels are significant clinical targets due to their ubiquitous nature. Drug-like molecules orthogonally affect structural ion channel homologs found throughout the human body. The balance of ions affects physiological processes such as cellular homeostasis, epigenetic regulation, and organ function. There is an unmet need to develop drugs to affect certain disease states in certain areas of the body. Daniel is producing therapeutic candidates in collaboration with the Medicinal Chemistry Knowledge Center, led by Dr. Mark Smith, and Daniel is conducting electrophysiological assays in the Maduke Lab.
