About Dr. Brian Bender
Dr. Bender completed his undergraduate studies at Colgate University in upstate New York with a degree in Biochemistry. Between undergraduate and graduate school Brian worked as a technician in an academic lab before moving to Nashville, TN for graduate work at Vanderbilt University where he joined the Department of Pharmacology.
Brain’s work there primarily focused on structure prediction of GPCRs from sparse experimental data. He then moved to the University of California in San Francisco to continue his training as a postdoctoral researcher where he used structural models of GPCRs to virtually screen large compound libraries with the goal of finding new chemical matter to probe understudied and orphan receptors.
Brian is involved in organizing the GRC/GRS Molecular Pharmacology meeting, which has been postponed to 2023. Brian is one of the organizers of the upcoming
