Job title: Professor
I am a biochemical neuropharmacologist, whose expertise is on cannabinoid receptor signal transduction. I am noted for my discovery of the CB1 receptor for cannabinoid agonists, development of the radioligand binding assay for the cannabinoid receptors that led to their identification, and development of antibodies that have been made available to researchers world-wide. I have worked with academic and private sector chemists in characterization of the structure-activity relationships of cannabinoid receptor agonists and my investigation of ligand-biased G protein activation has received editorial commentary.
