Opioid receptors play a major role in the treatment of severe pain. The project aims at accurate spatio-temporal modelling and simulation of intracellular signaling cascades initiated by opioid receptors, such as G-proteins, ion channels, cAMP, and the arrestin complex in order to design, e.g., non-addictive pain treatments.
