Structure, function and regulation of drug transporters in cancer treatment


idg  Dr. I. David Goldman
Departments of Molecular Pharmacology and Medicine, and the Albert Einstein Cancer Center
(718) 430-2594;

Key Words: Regulation,structure/function, physiological and pharmacological roles of a proton-coupled folate transporter and the genetics of hereditary folate malabsorption 

 Postdoctoral positions are now available for studies on the structure-function-electrophysiological properties and regulation of the proton-coupled folate transporter (PCFT). This novel carrier was recently discovered in this laboratory and is mutated in the autosomal recessive disorder, hereditary folate malabsorption, which is also a focus of studies in this laboratory. A strong background in molecular biology and/or membrane transport physiology is required; expertise in molecular modeling is desirable. This NCI- funded laboratory is a participant in the Experimental Therapeutics Program of the Albert Einstein Cancer Center.

Message From the Director

I. David Goldman, M.D.

Since the start of the 20th century, scientists have sought ways of harnessing the immune system to attack cancer cells. The challenge has been enormous. The immune system is designed to destroy foreign ...
