New Paper Published

The Heit lab, along with our collaborators in the Ferguson lab, have published a new study today in the journal Cell Signalling. This paper investigates the processes by which the internalization of a neurological receptor – CRFR1 – is regulated. This regulatory process may be important, and improper CRFR1 regulation is associated with some forms of metal illness.
