|Department:||Drug Discovery and Biomedical Sciences|
|Research Interests:||design and synthesis of novel chemical compounds for use in biological systems; potential therapeutic applications of the compounds for the treatment of drug abuse, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and infectious diseases; a safer and more potent pain modulator without the undesired side effects such as respiratory depression, dependence, and addiction; G protein-biased ligands that only engage the G protein signaling pathway without activating β-arrestins at the opioid receptors. Such ligand will produce more potent and safer analgesia than the traditional analgesics|
