!!Annette Catherine Dolphin - Biography
Annette Dolphin received her BA in Natural Sciences (Biochemistry) from the University of Oxford and her PhD from University of London, Institute of Psychiatry.  She then held postdoctoral fellowships at the College de France in Paris, and at Yale University, before returning to UK to the National Institute for Medical Research, London; followed by a lectureship in the Pharmacology Department of St. George’s Hospital Medical School, London University.  She was appointed Chair of the Department of Pharmacology at Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine, London University in 1990, and moved to University College London in 1997.  She is a Professor of Pharmacology in the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology at UCL.  She was elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences in 1999, and the Royal Society in 2015.  She is a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator, and held a Royal Society Leverhulme Trust Senior Research fellowship (2016-17).

Annette Dolphin is an ion channel biologist, with a particular interest in studying voltage-gated calcium channel function.  She has many years’ experience running a research lab in academia; for the last 20 years, at UCL.  She is particularly interested in the physiology and pharmacology of neuronal calcium channels, and in diseases involving these channels.  Her research utilises electrophysiology, as well as biochemical and imaging techniques.  Her most recent work relates to the role of neuronal calcium channels in the peripheral pain pathway, but her work also encompasses models and mechanisms of neurological and psychiatric diseases involving calcium channel subunits.\\ \\
