Imaging ligand-receptor interactions at the single cell level : Raine Visiting Professor Lecture Series Other events...
Professor Stephen Hill studied Pharmacology in Bristol (BSc, 1976) and then undertook PhD studies in the Department of Pharmacology in Cambridge (PhD 1979). After postdoctoral studies in Cambridge (1979-1981) he was appointed to a lecturer position in the Department of Pharmacy at the University of Nottingham. He joined the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology (now the School of Life Sciences) in 1984 and was subsequently promoted to Reader (1989) and Professor of Molecular Pharmacology (1995). In 1997 he became Director of the Institute of Cell Signalling and then Head of the School of Biomedical Sciences in 2008. He has published over 160 papers and his research has concentrated mainly on the molecular pharmacology of G protein-coupled receptors and cross-talk between intracellular signaling cascades. Currently, the emphasis of his work is on the study of single ligand-receptor interactions in membrane microdomains using fluorescence correlation spectroscopy. He 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 on Pharmacology. He was Vice-President (Meetings) of the British Pharmacological Society (2004-2006) and was the BPS Sandoz (Novartis) Prize winner in 1987 and the BPS Australasian Lecturer in 2006. He was elected a Fellow of the British Pharmacological Society in 2004. According to ISI, he is one of the top 250 pre-eminent individual researchers in pharmacology as measured by citations to their work (www.ISIhighlycited.com). He is currently Chair of the MRC Molecular & Cellular Medicine Research Board (having been a previous member between 2006-2011; Deputy Chair from 2008) and has previously served on the Wellcome Trust Physiology & Pharmacology Panel and the Wellcome Trust Career Development Interview Panel (both as Deputy Chair).
