    Collapse Overview
    My research focuses on understanding the role of Gs-protein coupled receptor signaling in skeletal development, with a focused interest in craniofacial fibrous dysplasia of the bone (FD) and McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS).

    Identification and Signaling Characterization of GNAS R201H/C Selective Inhibitors for FD/MAS
    University of Pennsylvania/Million Dollar Bike Ride Program Feb 1, 2022 - Mar 1, 2023
    Role: Co-Investigator
    Description: This study will test compounds that selectively bind GNAS R201* and assess whether they decrease cAMP signaling. The goal is to identify compounds that could selectively inhibit the mutated protein that causes fibrous dysplasia of the bone.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
