Daniel J Canney
Associate Professor, Department of Medicinal Chemistry
Temple University, USA
After receiving his B.S. degree in Pharmacy, Dr. Canney went on to earn a PhD in Medicinal Chemistry at Temple University. He then accepted a position as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Pharmacology and Molecular Biology at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis working on the development of novel anticonvulsant agents. He later joined the University of Pennsylvanias Department of Radiology (Section of Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry) as a research assistant professor where he worked on the development of organ and receptor-specific imaging agents for use in SPECT imaging studies (technetium and radioiodinated ligands).
Dr. Canney's current research interests include structure-activity relationship (SAR) studies involving molecules that modulate pharmacologically important protein targets.
