Mr Stuart Hanmer 

I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Physiology in 2009, where my final year thesis investigated the role of a C-terminal cysteine residue in innate oxygen sensitivity in the large-conductance, calciumsensitive potassium (BK) channel (Kemp et al., 2009). This project gave me a practical introduction to electrophysiology, and led me to embark on a PhD investigating novel ATP-gated ion channels in model invertebrate organisms.
