"Design and Discovery of Novel Subtype-selective Nicotinic Receptor Agonists and Antagonists Utilizing Animal-free Cell Culture and Microplate Technologies."

This project will utilize cloned human cell lines that express a variety o nicotine receptors to pharmacologically evaluate and determine the mechanism of potential drg candidates. The goal is to establish experimental protocols that will eventually replace the use of animals in nicotine drug activities and mechanism screens, as well as improve experimental assay precision and predictability.
