Dr Ivan Kadurin awarded a Project Grant from the British Heart Foundation

26 February 2019

Dr Ivan Kadurin has been awarded a £160K grant as a PI from the British Heart Foundation. Ivan will lead a project investigating how auxiliary proteins regulate Voltage-Gated Calcium Channels (VGCCs) in sensing and responding to electrical signals in arterial smooth muscle cells. Elucidating these mechanisms can provide rationale for targeting dysfunctions of the cardiovascular system. Ivan’s project builds on his postdoctoral work on VGCCs in the group of Professor Annette Dolphin (NPP) and on his existing collaborations with Professor Riccardo Olcese (UCLA) and Professor Andrew Tinker (QMUL).
