Ahmet Bora Inceoglu is a broadly trained biologist with experience in the
areas of biochemistry molecular biology and behavioral pharmacology. His
current work involves delineating the systems and mechanisms associated
with natural epoxygenated fatty acids in the nervous system in particular
in regard to nociception. He has identified analgesic and anti-convulsant
activities of these natural molecules and methods to regulate and enhance
their levels and bioactivity. He has developed experience and capabilities
in a range of areas from early discovery towards translation of basic
science. His research on epoxy fatty acids and their biological roles is
the basis of an effort to advance small molecule inhibitors of the soluble
epoxide hydrolase as novel analgesic drugs. In the CounterACT Center he
shares responsibility for the Education and Training Core with Dr. Wulff.
His research involves behavioral pharmacology and he is actively
collaborating with all three projects and cores to advance the
understanding of pro-convulsant threat agents and approaches to circumvent
their toxic effects.
