Improving Drug Discovery: All G with G-protein coupled receptors

The ability of our cells to send and receive signals is vital to the health of our bodies. When communication is disrupted, disease often follows. Many therapeutic drugs are used to treat a range of diseases by targeting specific cell receptors – the proteins on the cell surface that receive messages. Restored communication lines can reestablish function. Dr Christopher Draper-Joyce investigates approaches for safer, improved therapeutics.
