Research Interests

Epithelial cell transport
Dr. Bouyer research focuses on the regulation of fluid transport in colonic and upper airway epithelial cells. Impairment of this biological function is the hallmark of diseases such as: secretory diarrhea or cystic fibrosis. The laboratory is currently investigating the role of two protein kinases C in the control of fluid secretion by the Na-K-2Cl cotransporter.
