The Daws lab studies the function and regulation of biogenic amine transporters, including the “classic” serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine transporters, as well as the “non-traditional” organic cation and plasma membrane monoamine transporters. Deana’s research focuses on organic cation transporter-3 (OCT3), its role in serotonin uptake and how it may be harnessed as a target for improved therapeutic interventions for psychiatric disorders such as depression. She is using a combination of genetic and pharmacological approaches, together with in vivo neurochemical, biochemical and behavioral assays to study the role of OCT3 in serotonin neurotransmission and behavior. A major goal of Deana’s studies is to validate OCT3 as a target for the development of novel antidepressant medications.
