Next Webinar: Professor David Sheppard on Tuesday 30th November.

David N. Sheppard is Professor of Physiology at the University of Bristol.  He investigates the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), its dysfunction in cystic fibrosis (CF) and rescue with small molecules.  David’s interest in CF began studying intestinal ion channels with Francisco V. Sepúlveda (AFRC Institute of Animal Physiology and Genetic Research, Babraham).  After his PhD, David investigated neuronal ion channels with Fernando Giraldez (Valladolid University) before studying CFTR with Michael J. Welsh (University of Iowa).  Returning to the UK, David was a BBSRC Advance Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh before joining the University of Bristol.
