Personal Statement:

Allosteric drugs have the ability to fine-tune cellular response and direct cell signaling towards a particular pathway for the largest class of druggable proteins, G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). I use continuous wave and DEER EPR spectroscopies to study GPCRs in the presence of allosteric ligands, to identify the mechanism of the allosteric response, and inform future rational drug design.
