Molecular Pharmacology Laboratory – University of Copenhagen

Our Research

Laboratory for Molecular Pharmacology consists of three independent groups headed by Birgitte Holst, Mette M Rosenkilde and Thue W Schwartz. The common research theme for the three groups is the relationship between structure and function of 7TM (seven transmembrane segment), G protein-coupled receptors. The structure-function relationship is studied in close collaboration with computational chemistry groups – in particular Professor Thomas Frimurer and his group – and various medicinal chemistry groups in academia and in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry. Pharmacological concepts from the invtro studies are carried over into the in vivo pharmacological setting and probed in various animal models.
