Research Interests

Dr. Roy's laboratory is investigating the molecular mechanism of morphine-induced immunosuppression. Impaired immunity is a major contributing factor in the prevalence of opportunistic infections such as AIDS in chronic drug abusers. Understanding the molecular mechanism of morphine action will facilitate the development of biotherapies to overcome immunosuppression while retaining analgesic properties.
