    Collapse overview
    Dr. Weber is an expert in the biophysical properties of the tight junctions and focuses on defining mechanisms of claudin barrier regulation in health and disease.

    A second focus of Dr. Weber's lab is cardiac cellular electrophysiology, with an emphasis on mechanisms of abnormal cellular calcium handling in disease.
