Dr. Sulayman Dib-Hajj is a Senior Research Scientist at the Department of Neurology and the Center for Neuroscience and Regeneration Research, Yale University. His research focuses on the role of voltage-gated sodium channels in inherited and acquired pain disorders. He has been investigating the effect of mutations on biophysical properties and trafficking of sodium channels, leading to regulation of neuronal excitability. He also investigated modulation of sodium channels by post-translational modifications (phosphorylation) and by interaction with cytosolic protein partners.
