Center for Clinical Pharmacology

Center Welcomes Dr. Susruta Majumdar, Ph.D.

Majumdar headshotOn July, 1, 2018, Dr. Susruta Majumdar, Ph.D. will join the Center for Clinical Pharmacology as a principal investigator. He will hold a primary appointment as an Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical and Administrative Sciences at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy and a secondary appointment in the Department of Anesthesiology at Washington University School of Medicine. Research in his laboratory is aimed at attaining functional selectivity of opioid agonist action from its own target adverse effects while integrating chemical synthesis with biochemical, genetic and pharmacological approaches. The overall goal of the laboratory will be to synthesize novel chemical probes which allow us to understand preclinical/clinical pharmacology of opioid receptors and its physiological responses when activated.
