Dr. Henry A. Dunn’s research aims to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disease with the goal of facilitating the development of novel therapeutic strategies for a myriad of neurological conditions, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), anxiety disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and epilepsy.

With a prominent focus and expertise on G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and their associated signalling pathways – the pharmaceutical target of over 35% of FDA-approved drugs – Dr. Dunn’s lab utilizes multidisciplinary approaches spanning molecular mechanisms to rodent models, including: molecular pharmacology, biochemistry, cellular & molecular neurobiology, bioinformatics and behavioural neuroscience.
