Part of the Foster Talk series, organised by the Department of Physiology, Development & Neuroscience

Many cardiovascular diseases are also diseases of the autonomic nervous system. This talk will present recent cellular and molecular findings highlighting the role of cyclic nucleotides in abnormal neurotransmission, and use of a gene transfer strategy to rescue neuronal phenotypes.


Professor David Paterson completed his doctoral studies in physiological sciences at Oxford in the eighties having been a graduate of the University of Otago (NZ), and the University of Western Australia. He received his Doctor of Science (D.Sc) degree from Western Australia in 2005 and was made a Fellow of the Institute of Biology in 2003. Following an MRC post doc in Oxford and a BHF lectureship he was appointed to a University Lecturership in 1994 and made a Fellow of Merton College, Oxford. He is currently Professor of Physiology and Associate Head of the Division of Medical Sciences, Oxford. He chairs the Division’s Education Committee, is a member of the executive committee of the BHF Centre of Research Excellence at Oxford, and is a member of a National Research Excellence (REF 2014) panel. He is currently Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Physiology.

This event is open to everyone, including non-Department members. Free snacks and drinks will be provided after the event.
