Ion Laboratory

The Ion Laboratory, also known as the IonLab, is an electrophysiology core facility that is part of the Ion Channels and Transporters in Immunity Research Program directed by Stefan Feske, MD, in NYU Langone’s Department of Pathology. The IonLab facilitates research in the area of ion channel and transporter function and ionic signaling in immune cells and in other cell types or organ systems.

IonLab services are available to all investigators at NYU Langone, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, other academic institutions, and industry partners. No prior experience with electrophysiology or ionic signaling is necessary.

The IonLab is led by director William A. Coetzee, DSc, and the day to day operations of the lab are run by operations manager Soomin Song, PhD. We are available to assist users with experimental design, training, implementation, and data analysis.
