Dr. Justin Drake has joined the Department of Pharmacology!
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Justin Drake to the Department of Pharmacology. Dr. Drake’s research focuses on blending basic and translational research approaches to better understand the signaling networks in lethal metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer, and how to more effectively treat patients who are suffering from this disease using rationalized targeted therapies. Dr. Drake joins us from the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Drake to the Department and the University!
Dr. Steven Graves has joined the Department of Pharmacology!
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Steven Graves as a new tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology! The recruitment of Dr. Graves was made possible with generous support from the Medical Discovery Team on Addiction and the Institute for Translational Neuroscience. Dr. Graves applies techniques in behavioral pharmacology, electrophysiology, biochemistry, two-photon imaging, and optogenetics to understand mechanisms underlying the neurotoxic effects of drugs like methamphetamine, the neuroadaptations that support addictive behaviors, and circuit dynamics associated with motor dysfunction in Parkinson's disease.
