Glucocorticoid Receptor (GR) Research Program

The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) is a member of the nuclear receptor super-familyof transcription factors. Some GR chaperones have been genetically linked to mooddisorders, PTSD and actions of mood stabilizers. Further, the most well characterized GR polymorphisms support a positive association between reduced GC sensitivity and beneficial metabolic and cognitive effects.  The objective of the GRprogram is to develop antagonists of the HPA Axis and Inflammatory
