Establish NMVAHCS laboratory and begin work on molecular neurobiological and genetic approaches to addictions, neurodegenerations and personalized medicine/pharmacogenomics in human and mouse models. Also identified genes that encode primary targets of drug action, that harbor variants that alter vulnerability to development of substance use disorders (through modest GWAS signals), developed and tested mouse models for understanding these genes and developed new approaches to identify small molecules active at several of these sites. I have developed deep structure activity insights from numerous studies of site-directed mutagenesis and chimera studies of SLC6A3/DAT and OPRM1/mu opiate drug targets, including increasingly-sophisticated molecular modeling.
