My Helms, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Physiology

My Helms is an Assistant Professor, Dept. of Physiology, at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Her general research interest is to better understand what controls sodium channel activity in epithelial cells found in both the kidney and in the lungs. She primarily uses single-channel patch clamp techniques and advanced molecular biological assays to study the signal transduction cascades that regulate ENaC function.
