Dr. Patricia Reggio (Chemistry and Biochemistry) received a continuation of funding from Temple University for the project “Molecular Characterization of GPR35 and GPR55, Putative Cannabinoid Receptors.” The goal of the proposed project is to understand the functional features of the candidate cannabinoid receptor GPR55 and the recently de-orphanized GPR35 that may define mechanisms of drug-receptor interactions relevant to physiological and pathophysiological function including drug abuse.
