Of ligands, receptors, pharmacology, human therapy and wind mills / Gunnar Schulte
Professor: Gunnar Schulte
Title: Of ligands, receptors, pharmacology, human therapy and wind mills
Gunnar Schulte, also called “Mr Frizzled”, is Professor in Receptor Pharmacology at the Department of Physiology & Pharmacology at Karolinska Institutet. While he studies information flow initiated by G protein-coupled receptors, he has focused on a rather exotic and unexplored group of receptors, the Class Frizzled receptors mediating effects of WNT and Hedgehog proteins. Despite a general disbelief in the field, Gunnar Schulte investigates the function of Class F receptors as G protein-coupled receptors with the aim to exploit the new knowledge of receptor activation mechanisms for developing new drugs and potential therapies for human disease.
The lectures take place 12:15 – 12:45 in the library on Campus Flemingsberg. Students are invited to take part in a lunch time lecture on an interesting topic while enjoying a sandwich and drink (on a first come, first served basis). Sandwiches are served with most allergens and diets in mind (gluten, vegan etc).
You can also watch previous lectures on Youtube.
