SEMINAR: “New insights into GPCR pharmacology using fluorescent ligands”
|“New insights into GPCR pharmacology using fluorescent ligands”
Professor Stephen Hill obtained his PhD from Cambridge in 1979. Following postdoctoral, lecturer and Reader positions at Cambridge and Nottingham, he was appointed Professor of Molecular Pharmacology at Nottingham in 1995. In 1997 he became Director of the Institute of Cell Signalling and then Head of the School of Biomedical Sciences in 2008.
Prof Hill has published over 150 papers, with his research concentrating mainly on the molecular pharmacology of G protein-coupled receptors and cross-talk between intracellular signalling cascades. Currently, the emphasis of his work is on the study of single ligand-receptor interactions in membrane microdomains using fluorescence correlation spectroscopy.
Prof Hill is a founding director of the University of Nottingham spin-out company CellAura Technologies Ltd that provides fluorescent ligands to the scientific community. He has served on the Editorial Boards of the British Journal of Pharmacology and Current Opinion in Pharmacology. He was elected a Fellow of the British Pharmacological Society (BPS) in 2004 and was Vice-President (Meetings) of BPS from 2004 to 2006.
