Personal profile


I am Pharmacologist interested in psychoactive drugs, particularly cannabinoids, opioids and psychedelics. My lab studies how these molecules interact with G protein coupled receptors and ion channels to exert their effects. Currently my work is focussed on the pharmacology and toxicity of emerging synthetic cannabinoid receptor agonists (Spice/K2), the molecular mechanisms underlying the potential therapeutic actions of phytocannabinoids, the pharmacology of novel psychedelics and the interactions of clinically used opioids naturally occuring variants of opioid receptors.
