Research Focus & Interests  
  • Protein secretion/trafficking
  • Transport vesicles
  • Endoplasmic reticulum
  • Coat Protein Complex II (COPII)
  • Craniofacial diseases
  • Musculoskeletal diseases

Secretory proteins and transmembrane proteins are synthesized in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The vast majority of these proteins exit the ER via transport vesicles generated by coat protein complex II (COPII). Proper assembly of these COPII vesicles is essential for cell viability and animal development. My laboratory studies how various cargo molecules are packaged into COPII vesicles and what are the consequences of aberrant COPII vesicle assembly in human.
