About Michael

My primary teaching activities include organizing and lecturing in BMS 500 -- Mammalian Physiology, lecturing in neuroscience courses, and participating in various journal clubs. This formal teaching involves excitable membrane molecular biology and physiology as it relates to nerve and muscle function. However, most of the teaching activity is centered in the research laboratory. Instruction here runs from the postdoctoral to the undergraduate level; for the Tamkun laboratory contains postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduates pursuing independent research projects.
