Molecular Pharmacology

Research conducted by these investigators involves the identification and characterization of novel signaling systems; understanding mechanisms of drug and hormone action at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels; the design and synthesis of new chemical entities; and the generation of animal models in which to evaluate the actions of these small molecules in the search for prototypical therapeutic agents.
