Ream Al-Hasani, PhD

Associate Professor

Studies ‭the negative affective behaviors associated with the withdrawal ‭phase of addiction and the interaction of endogenous opioid ‭systems with commonly prescribed opioid analgesics.

Tao Che, PhD

Tao Che, PhD

Assistant Professor

Research in the Che lab is foucused on comprehensively characterizing and dissecting the molecular mechanisms of opioid receptor signaling in order to gain an atomic-level understanding of opioid receptor activation, and to use this information to develop chemical and synthetic biologic tools.

 

Bahaa El-Gendy, PhD
