Receptors that sense endogenous lipids are important in norman brain function and in human disase. The endogenous substances which target these receptors are currently under debate. The project aims to continue current investigation of lipid-sensing receptor function at a cellular level. The investigation of these receptors is significant as current research has suggested that they may have a role in the signalling pathways involved in pain, cancer and multiple sclerosis.
