By subject area
Professor of Pharmacology in the Department of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Macquarie University. I study the cellular basis of opioid and cannabinoid receptor/ligand actions, with with the aim of better understanding their acute effects and the adaptations that occur after prolonged administration. This work has taken me to the University of Washington, University of Bristol, University of Sydney and the Vollum Institute before arriving at Macquarie. At the moment my lab focuses on the pharmacology of illicit synthetic cannabinoids and the molecular effects of phytocannabinoids.
