Research Interests

Combining the structure function analyses of a range of GPCRs with their clinical and biological relevance to answer fundamental questions about cell signalling, drug response and pharmacology. Key areas of interest include a particular clinical emphasis on orexins and their receptors, as well as a general approach to elucidate the shared mechanisms of action between the sub-families of G-protein coupled receptors. I also have an interest in neuropsychopharmacology and the genetics of psychiatric disease.
