Sergi Ferré is Senior Scientist at the National Institute on Drug Abuse. His research deals with the study of signaling complexes of G proteincoupled receptors (GPCRs), particularly those including different receptor units, GPCR heteromers. He is interested in the discovery of GPCR heteromers that can constitute therapeutic targets in neuropsychiatric disorders and in the role of GPCR heteromers determining functional differences of the products of gene polymorphisms associated with endophenotypes of neuropsychiatric disorders. His laboratory uses multiple approaches, from biophysical techniques in cell lines, to in vivo animal models, with combinations of intracranial electrical and optogenetic stimulation and in vivo microdialysis techniques
