Ion Laboratory

The Ion Laboratory, also known as the IonLab, is a new 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, but welcomes users who are studying other cell types or organ systems.

Led by director William A. Coetzee, DSc, the IonLab services are available to all investigators at NYU Langone, regardless of whether they have prior experience in measuring ion channel currents, transporter function and ionic signaling. The lab is also available to investigators in the larger NYU community, other academic institutions in the New York area, and industry partners.

The day to day operations of the lab are led by assistant director Jerome Petit-Jacques, PhD. Dr. Petit-Jacques is available to assist users with experimental design, training, implementation, and data analysis.
