Dr. GPCR Podcast

Dr. Paul Insel

About this episode


In 1975, Dr. Paul Insel was at the FASEB experimental biology meeting in Atlantic City. During dinner with colleagues and Alfred Gillman, co-recipient of the 1994 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of G-proteins and their role in signal transduction in cells, Paul was designated to go to Gillman’s lab. That summer, he used radioligand binding methods to dissect receptor function from the adenylyl cyclase activated by ligands, including adrenaline. From that point on, Paul was hooked and has since studied receptor function in human physiology, receptor molecular pharmacology in cells, and animal models, and as he puts it has now he’s "gone full circle" back to studying GPCRs important in human pathophysiology. Today, Paul and his team focus on previously unrecognized receptors with the hopes to use these as novel drug targets.
