Dumitru A. Iacobas, Ph.D.

Visiting Assistant Professor, Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience

Professional Interests

We are focused on identifying and quantifying the connexin-dependent regulatory networks, determining the topology of critical functional genomic fabrics and on developing mathematical models of intercellular Ca2+ signaling in complex structures.
