Associate Professor, Pharmaceutical Sciences
Dr. Gottlieb completed his undergraduate studies at Texas A&M-Kingsville. Soon after, he moved to New Orleans where he pursued his doctoral dissertation research under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Kapusta at LSU Health Sciences Center. After successful defense of his dissertation, titled Water Diuretic Properties of kappa Opioids: CNS Sites, Mechanisms, and Functions, Dr. Gottlieb obtained a Ph.D. in Pharmacology and moved to San Antonio in 2004 to pursue postdoctoral research at UTHSCSA Department of Pharmacology under the guidance of Dr. JT Cunningham.
Dr. Gottlieb’s current research is being funded by the National Institutes of Health and combines whole animal integrative pharmacology/physiology with functional neuroanatomy and molecular biology to understand the role opioid systems play in the regulation of fluid and electrolyte balance and cardiovascular function. These ongoing studies are performed in collaboration with Dr. Glenn Toney’s laboratory at the UTHSCSA, where Dr. Gottlieb holds an adjunct faculty position. Dr. Gottlieb’s research goal is to provide basic knowledge on how different CNS systems interact and modulate water and sodium balance. This research is crucial for the prevention and treatment of a number of diseases, as well as to the development of new therapeutics. Dr. Gottlieb has presented his work at national and international meetings, and his work has been published in journals such as the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, American Journal of Physiology, Journal of Neuroendocrinology, and Experimental Neurology.
Dr. Gottlieb is primarily involved in teaching Pharmacology and coordinating two of the twelve Therapeutics modules. These include Pharmacotherapeutics II Introduction to Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapeutics V Cardiovascular Disorders. Dr. Gottlieb is also a co-coordinator for an elective course, The Yin and Yang of Natural Dietary Supplements.
In addition to Dr. Gottlieb scholarly activities, he is a member of a number of professional societies which include the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET), the American Physiological Society (APS), and American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP).
