About this episode
Elva is currently a research fellow at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Elva moved to Canada where she obtained her Ph.D. at the University of Western Ontario, working on the regulation of G proteins signaling by accessory proteins, such as RGS proteins and GPSM proteins.
After her Ph.D., she moved to Australia and continues working on GPCRs. Her current research focuses on class B GPCRs and understanding how GPCR signaling and function is mediated by various ligands, binding partners, and intracellular machinery. In her spare time, Elva likes to run in the mountains, play with Tilly (a 9-year old retired greyhound), collecting mini shoes, and hang out with friends.
Join me to learn more about Elva, class B GPCRs, and Tilly.
