Neuropharmacology & Toxicology

Neuropharmacology & Toxicology

We are discovering the mechanisms of cellular neurotoxicity in brain cells that affect common life threatening diseases such as cardiovascular, Parkinsons, and neurodegenerative diseases.

Our novel discoveries include G protein-coupled receptor signaling, effects of environmental pollutants on neurogenesis, and purinergic neurotransmission in the intestine.
