Sensory Neuroscience

The Pearring lab studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying polarized delivery of signaling proteins in vertebrate neurons. Specifically, we investigate how membrane-bound cargo is properly transported to the light-sensing organelle in retinal photoreceptors and how intracellular trafficking mechanisms influence the formation and function of this organelle.
