Faculty Promotions: Susana Valente and Patricia McDonald

As announced at a recent meeting of the TSRI Board of Trustees of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), TSRI faculty members Susana Valente and Patricia McDonald have received promotions.

Valente is now associate professor in the Department of Infectious Diseases. The Valente lab focuses on the discovery and characterization of molecular interactions within a host cell that are critical for HIV replication with the goal of developing therapeutic targets and providing novel antiviral approaches. For further information, visit Valente’s faculty page and lab website.

McDonald has been promoted to assistant professor in the Department of Molecular Therapeutics. The McDonald lab concentrates on developing biochemical and cell-based functional assays to monitor GPCR activity with the aim—in collaboration with other disciplines such as chemistry, DMPK and in vivo pharmacology—of identifying and developing small molecule modulators of GPCRs for potential therapeutic treatment of metabolic and central nervous system disorders. For additional information, see the McDonald faculty page.
