“New paradigms of adenosine receptor pharmacology” Other events...
Dr May obtained her PhD in 2007 at The University of Melbourne under the supervision of Professor Arthur Christopoulos. Research during Dr May’s PhD focused on investigating the pharmacological properties of allosteric modulators of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), and resulted in a series of important publications including five peer-reviewed original research papers and four review articles in high-ranking journals (Annu Rev Pharmacol Toxicol, PNAS, Mol Pharmacol, and JPET). Her thesis received an award of excellence from the Dean of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences. In 2008, Dr May was awarded an NHMRC CJ Martin Fellowship, which led to her postdoctoral studies within the Institute of Cell Signalling, University of Nottingham, under the supervision of Prof. Stephen Hill, a world leader in the molecular pharmacology of GPCRs and studies of single-cell pharmacology. Research during Dr May’s postdoctoral studies focus on the development of population and single cell approaches to investigate new paradigms of GPCR drug action including allosterism, dimerization and biased agonism. Publications during her postdoctoral position in Nottingham include four peer-reviewed original research papers in FASEB J, Mol Pharmacol and BJP, two review articles and one book chapter. In 2011, Dr May returned 2011 to the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Monash University, where she was a recipient of the 2011 ASCEPT Denis Wade Johnson & Johnson New Investigator Award, received the 2012 Young Investigator Faculty Research Award, MIPS Monash University and was most recently awarded a 2013 ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award to investigate ‘Allosteric fingerprinting of G protein-coupled receptor monomers and oligomers’.
