Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology



Research in NPP is organised into four major themes: ‘Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience’, ‘Cellular and Circuit Neuroscience’, ‘Circuit and Systems Neuroscience’ and ‘Epithelial Biology

NPP has an outstanding scientific heritage, built on the seminal contributions of many notable members of the former departments of Biophysics, Pharmacology and Physiology. These include James Black, Alfred Clark, John Gaddum, Paul Fatt, Archibald Hill, Andrew Huxley, Bernard Katz, Ricardo Miledi, and Heinz Otto Schild, whose work led to the development of modern, quantitative pharmacology, the first detailed descriptions of synaptic transmission, and the mechanistic understanding of ion channel function.
