About the Hurley Lab:

The viability and function of neurons rely on proper control of metabolic energy. Our primary aim now is to understand how metabolic energy is produced and distributed in photoreceptors. We are investigating the molecular mechanisms by which these neurons respond to the changing temporal and spatial energy demands of darkness and light.
