Description

Insane in the membrane; insane in the brain!

Professor Roslyn Bill

LHS Associate Dean, Professor of Biotechnology




The lyrical title of my inaugural lecture is a nod to the nineties, when I was a doctoral student. It aptly highlights two words: membrane and brain. One of my scientific passions is cell membranes, the structures that define cells and separate them from their surroundings. I will tell you about one aspect of what they (and I!) do, which is to control the flow of water into and out of cells. Following head trauma or stroke, that flow can lead to brain swelling and death. My lecture focuses on the longstanding work of my collaborative team in developing molecular understanding in order to discover new treatments for brain swelling.
