Research of Francis Valiyaveetil noted in prominent academic editorial

A recent paper co-authored by Francis I. Valiyaveetil, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Physiology & Pharmacology, was noted in an editorial in ACS Chemical Biology written by Hagan Bayley (Oxford), an international leader in the study of membrane proteins. Commenting on the paper: "A modular strategy for the semi-synthesis of a K_ channel: investigating interactions of the pore helix," (published in ACS Chem. Biol. 4) (by Komarov, A. G., Linn, K. M., Devereaux, J. J., and Valiyaveetil, F. I.), Dr. Bayley wrote: "The work enhances the technology available for a range of fundamental investigations of membrane proteins and for applications of membrane channels and pores in biotechnology."

Dr. Valiyaveetil joined the Department of Physiology & Pharmacology in 2006 and was selected as a Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences in 2007. He is a founding member of the Program in Chemical Biology at OHSU. Read the paper here.
