Project Leader – Endosomal Signalling (Targeting Endosomes for Treatment of Pain)
Drug Discovery Biology, Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences
Dr. Nicholas Veldhuis is a Senior Research Fellow in the Drug Discovery Biology Theme at Monash University. His work focuses on identifying and characterising new drug targets (receptors, ion channels, signalling proteins) that contribute to pain and inflammation, and developing novel drug delivery systems (lipid anchors and nanoparticles). He is the project leader for “Endosomal drug delivery systems: Targeting pain at the source”.
Nicholas has expertise in cell biology, live cell protein trafficking, protein expression/purification, cell signalling, and development of novel drug delivery systems for selective inhibition of pain signalling GPCRs.
