Dr Arthur Christopoulos
University of Melbourne
Arthur has established a strong international reputation in the field of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) pharmacology, focussing on the understanding of allosteric mechanisms at GPCRs, which represent the major targets for all drugs in the world at present. Through the development of analytical and screening methodologies, his work has the potential to result in novel therapeutic agents that will display greater selectivity and safety than current medicines for treatment of diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia and asthma.
Arthur is now a Professor of Pharmacology at Monash University.
