Scientifica Meets - Professor David Wyllie
David Wyllie is the Professor of Ion Channel Physiology and Pharmacology and Director of the Centre for Integrative Physiology at the University of Edinburgh.
Professor Wyllie studies neurotransmitter action in central neurons to understand normal synaptic function and its dysfunction in models of neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases.
The lab's overall aim is to develop an integrated approach to research that begins with the study of single protein molecules and synaptic function and extends, through collaboration with colleagues, to whole animal studies with an ultimate goal of the clinical study and treatment of disease.
