Martin is Professor of Experimental Medicine and Integrative Biology within Medicine at the University of Southampton.
In biology, a finite number of regulatory modules and organising principles suffice to support life and are used by microbes, plants and mammals alike. As a Systems Biologist (with a predilection toward evolutionary thought and a knack for analytical chemistry) I am interested in unraveling the significance of nitric oxide and sulfur in its various forms for human physiology. Specifically, I aim to understand how their production and availabilities are regulated in the face of rapidly changing demands as a function of nutrient and oxygen supply, physical activity and interaction with the environment; and – above all - how this is orchestrated at the cellular, organ and whole body level.
After the study of pharmacy Martin earned his PhD in pharmacology from the Heinrich-Heine University in Dusseldorf in 1988. He was appointed to the Personal Chair of Experimental Medicine & Integrative Biology at Southampton University in April 2012, following a number of other senior research positions in both academia and industry in the USA and Europe.
