During her visit, she gave an oral presentation with the title of “Human MRP4 (ABCC4) Transporter Variants and their potential impact on Arsenic toxicity.” 

Dr. COLE introduced the drug sensitivity and toleration of molecular which mediated by the ATP binding cassette (ABC) superfamily transporters, revealing the human MRP4 transporter (ABCC4) mutant and the potential impact on the toxicity of arsenic. The ABC superfamily is an ancient and large family, a class of ATP drive pump consisting of transmembrane structures and two cytoplasmic ATP binding domains. Dr. COLE also introduced the small molecule drugs of how to screen and regulate MRP activity and the related questions of MRP gene polymorphism.
