About Dr. Adriano Marchese
Adriano Marchese is a Professor of Biochemistry at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Adriano received his Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacology in 1991 from the University of Toronto. He continued his graduate studies at the University of Toronto where he earned his MSc (1994) and Ph.D. (1998) in Pharmacology. He then moved to Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA, for his postdoctoral training in Jeff Benovic’s laboratory studying the regulation of G protein-coupled receptor trafficking and signaling. In 2004 Adriano joined the faculty of the Department of Pharmacology at Loyola University Chicago. In 2016 he decided to move his lab to the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI.
Adriano’s research has contributed to our understanding of the role that ubiquitin plays in GPCR signaling and trafficking. His laboratory is interested in understanding the mechanisms that govern spatial and temporal regulation of GPCR signaling by -arrestins and post-translational modifications (PTMs), such as phosphorylation, ubiquitination, and SUMOylation. His lab has shown a role for -arrestins and PTMs in GPCR trafficking and signaling and has leveraged this knowledge to reveal the spatial and temporal requirements for GPCR activation of signaling pathways related to cell survival, proliferation, and migration. The ultimate goal of Adriano’s research is to target novel aspects of GPCR signaling for therapeutic development.
