Welcome to the Baucum Lab

Research interests

Overall, research in the Baucum Lab focuses on the protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) binding proteins, spinophilin and neurabin. We use biochemical, proteomic, pharmacological, and physiological approaches to understand how spinophilin and neurabin function in different cell types under normal and pathological conditions. The overall goal is to determine if spinophilin signaling can be targeted to ameloriate pathologies and disorders such as Parkinson Disease, drug addiction, ischemia, and obesity and diabetes
