Research Interests

Dr. Adler's laboratory has shown that the endogenous opioid system (receptors and ligands) is involved in a number of physiological and pathological processes including analgesia, thermoregulation, and brain excitability. These opioid systems produce their biological effects as part of a cascade of events that involve a number of neuropeptides and neurotransmitters. More recently, the interactions of opioids, cytokines and chemokines in the brain have been studied with regard to pain, thermoregulation and immunoregulation. The interactions of opioids with other abused drugs, especially cannabinoids, is a major focus of the laboratory.
