Research Towards Non-Addictive Painkillers

We are using newly available structural information of opioid receptors in computer simulations to discover novel painkillers with reduced abuse liability and other adverse effects.

Development of Novel, Pure Antagonists of Beta3 Integrins

We use information from structure and molecular dynamics simulations to discover novel therapeutics to treat renal, hematologic, neoplastic, bone, and/or fibrotic diseases.

Understanding How Membrane Proteins Mediate Cellular Functions

We are running massive computer simulations to find out how membrane protein complexes process cell signaling so that we can make drugs more specific and design more efficient medicines.

We belong to the Department of Pharmacological Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS), New York, NY, USA.
