Terry Hébert is a Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at McGill University. He has a long-standing track record in identification of molecular mechanisms involved in the function of G protein-coupled receptors publishing more than 160 papers. His research program is centred broadly around the theme of G... read moreprotein-coupled signal transduction systems, interested in 1) basic mechanisms of how these signalling systems are wired in the cell, 2) novel signalling complexes and pathways associated with alternative subcellular localization of GPCRs and G proteins, 3) the roles that these architectural features of signalling complex design might play in cardiovascular diseases, cancer, rare developmental disorders and pre-term labour and 4) the development of biosensors that track GPCR and G protein signalling as well as GPCR conformational dynamics in living cells with a new focus on using the biosensors in inducible pluripotent stem cell-based models of disease and in in vivo applications for drug discovery.
