Under general direction, the Staff Research Associate II will synthesize and study the activity of ligands targeting the nuclear receptor Nurr1, a potential therapeutic target for Parkinson’s disease.
The Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry is one of the three research and teaching departments in the School of Pharmacy at UCSF. As part of its research mission, the research laboratory focuses on developing chemical tools for decoding biology and advancing medicine. The laboratory is currently developing synthetic small molecules to control the activity of nuclear receptors, a class of intracellular proteins that regulate gene expression in response to endogenous hormones and other small molecules. These receptors play critical roles in human development, physiology, and disease and have proven to be effective therapeutic drug targets.
