Brief description The use of morphine as an analgesic is still limited by undesirable side effects such as tolerance. Despite decades of research, the mechanisms behind the development of tolerance are poorly understood. The ? opioid receptor is a protein expressed at the surface of the cells that is the target of morphine. This project will investigate the signalling events triggered by opioids with unprecedented resolution and will aim to elucidate why morphine elicits more tolerance than other opioid drugs.
