Welcome to the laboratory of receptor transducer coupling
We are interested in answering compelling biological questions to do with how G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) couple to their transducers. This is done primarily in the context of GPCRs that are involved in the physiology or pathophysiology of metabolism and the gut-brain axis.
Honours and PhD positions are available for motivated students who have a strong desire to assume ownership of a project & work independently in a supportive, team-based environment where the lab head is at the bench.
We are are excited that our work on the interaction between dopamine and ghrelin receptor signalling pathways is out on BioRxiv, which follows on from our demonstration for the requirement for ghrelin receptor in dopamine mediated control of voluntary defecation.
