Research Interests

The Zhang research lab focuses on the understanding of structure-function-relationship (SFR) of GPCR super-family members. The results from our study will benefit the general understanding of GPCR activation and deactivation mechanisms, and their roles in the signal transduction for different types of diseases. That also will provide novel lead compounds for drug discovery targeting on specific GPCRs to treat diseases of interest.
