Research
Dr. Choi's investigational work began early in his career. His research as a graduate student led to the co-discovery of how benzodiazepine drugs work to enhance gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) actions. Later his laboratory studied pathological neuronal cell death, discovering a key role for N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor activation and calcium overload in excitotoxicity, and for zinc in ischemic brain injury. More recently, Dr. Choi has worked to advance translational clinical research, including biomarker development for brain disorders. He holds seven patents for his highly innovative work.
