I am a receptor pharmacologist/structural biologist interested in how physiologically-active molecules cause clinical benefits in humans. I have focused on G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and their ligand/drug interactions using biochemical, X-ray crystallographic, and pharmacological approaches. I have research training in pharmacology, biochemistry, and molecular/ cellular biology. My current research topic is to reveal a molecular mechanism of how the anti-diabetic peptide hormone amylin interacts with its receptor.
