Portrait of Patricia ReggioDr. Patricia Reggio (Chemistry and Biochemistry) received a continuation of funding from the National Institutes of Health, National Institute on Drug Abuse for the project “Molecular Determinants of Cannabinoid Activity.” The project’s long term goal is to elucidate the basis for the actions of the cannabinoids at the molecular level, the abstract notes. “The information about cannabinoid receptor structure and binding modes of ligands will aid in fundamental structure-function studies of this important class of receptors and will also aid in the design of improved therapeutic agents based on the cannabinoids.”
