Dr. Loh's laboratory continues its long-term investigations
into the molecular neurobiology of opioid actions and addiction.
Current projects include studies on 1) the molecular mechanisms
of opiate and endorphin actions; 2) the molecular mechanisms
of opiate tolerance; 3) Tissue-specific regulation of opioid
receptor gene expression; 4) Regulation of opioid receptor
signal transduction; and 5) Functions of endorphins in the
Dr. Loh is also the Director of the Basic Research Center in Molecular & Cell
Biology of Drug Addiction.
