Jérémie Neasta, PhD

Associate Professor of Pharmacology

Faculté de pharmacie, Université de Montpellier


Jérémie received his Ph.D. in neuropharmacology in 2006 at the University of Toulouse. His thesis work was performed at the Institut de Pharmacologie et de Biologie Structurale and sought to analyze the neuronal adaptations that ensue from the activation of the mu opioid receptor (a GPCR).  He completed his postdoctoral training in Dorit Ron lab at the University of California San Francisco (2007-2011) where he focused on the molecular bases of alcohol actions on neurons and in animal models of alcohol use disorder. Jérémie joined the IBMM in 2013 and was appointed assistant professor of Pharmacology at the University of Montpellier in 2015. His teaching ranges from fundamental to clinical pharmacology. Jérémie has a strong background in GPCR biology, cell signaling, neuroscience, and glucose metabolism. His current research projects cover different aspects of fundamental pharmacology with a particular interest in the ghrelin system and the bioactivity of naturally occurring molecules.
