Dr Ross Anderson
|I am currently a Lecturer in the Department of Physiology at the University of Pretoria. My research is heavily grounded in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, and cell signalling.
My current research themes are:
1) the discovery and characterisation of pharmacological chaperones (small molecules that rescue the cell surface expression of intracellularly retained GPCR mutants)
2) Identification of novel hypothalamic GPCRs involved in the control of reproduction
3) Biased signalling of neuroendocrine GPCRs and GPCR mutants.
I am one of the founding members of the Centre for Neuroendocrinology (established in 2017) at the University of Pretoria.
