Professor Annette Dolphin delivers the 2019 Mabel FitzGerald Lecture
28 January 2019
The annual lecture, hosted by the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford, pays tribute to Mabel Purefoy FitzGerald - the pioneering physiologist, clinical pathologist and the second female member in the history of the American Physiology Society.
Professor Dolphin, who is a University of Oxford graduate with a BA in Natural Sciences and holds a PhD from the University of London's Institute of Psychiatry, delivered this year's talk entitled: Neuronal calcium channel trafficking and function: relevance to chronic pain.
“I feel privileged to have been asked to give this very special lecture that both honours women in science and encourages young women to embark on a career in scientific research. I enjoyed my day in Oxford enormously; it gave me the chance both to meet some inspiring young researchers, as well as to catch up with old friends”, said Professor Dolphin.
