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.

The RTC lab has now moved to the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Queensland.

We are pleased to announce that Noah has published his first peer-reviewed article in Biochemical Pharmacology.  We were recently involved in the team that published the first active structure of the cholecystokinin receptor and demonstrated the requirement for ghrelin receptor in dopamine mediated control of voluntary defecation.
