G-protein-coupled receptor signalling and regulation – current interests are focussed on neuromedin U receptors and the glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor, where we are exploring aspects including ligand bias, novel ligands, interactions between allosteric and othosteric ligands and factors influencing receptor recycling and re-sensitisation.
