Dr. Rajan Lamichhane was awarded a MIRA (Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award) from NIH entitled Conformational Dynamics of G Protein-Coupled Receptors at the Single-Molecule Level. These grants provide investigators with flexibility to follow up on interesting results to make important breakthroughs. In this project he will be mapping the energy landscapes of G protein coupled receptors. This information will help us understand how different pharmacological ligands affect receptor activation. Congratulations!
