James (Jim) Bassingthwaighte , MD, PhD

Email: jbb2@uw.edu

Phone: (206) 685-2012

Dr. Bassingthwaighte's lab uses multiple radioactive tracers simultaneously to measure reactions of adenosine and its metabolites and to determine their rates of transport across membranes. Models describe the kinetics in a precise way, allowing us to understand the regulation. He is also the originator of the Human Physiome Project, a large-scale international program for developing databasing and biological systems modeling for understanding genomic and pharmaceutic effects on human physiology. His program is highly collaborative, involving co-investigators at a dozen U.S. universities, several in Europe, and in 14 departments at the University of Washington. Some of these are involved in the Physiome Project, in particular the Cardiome Project. The Cardiome Project, to define a functional heart in mathematical terms, extends from the biochemistry and the signaling, to the mechanics and energetics of the three-dimensional heart.

Mark Binder , PhD

Email: mdbinder@uw.edu

Phone: (206) 543-2509

Dr. Binder's lab is presently investigating the dendritic mechanisms affecting the transfer of synaptic current to the soma of hypoglossal motoneurons recorded in rat brainstem slices. His team studies the voltage-dependance of the synaptic currents, what types of voltage-gated conductances on the dendrites affect the transfer of current to the soma and how concurrently-activated synaptic currents interact. They also use fluorescent imaging to determine the spatial distribution of the dendritic sodium, calcium, and mixed-cation channels. Binder's experimental projects are complemented by computer simulations using compartmental models of motoneurons with different types and distributions of dendritic conductances to help interpret the experimental data.
