Research in the laboratory is aimed at attaining functional selectivity of opioid agonist action from its own target adverse effects while integrating chemical synthesis with biochemical, genetic and pharmacological approaches. The overall goal of the laboratory will be to synthesize novel chemical probes using structure based design as analgesics devoid of respiratory depression and addiction liability.
