Are GTGs a new type of plant anion channel regulating pH in the endomembrane system?

Studying as a postgraduate research student allows you to independently study a very specific area of research that of which may never have been studied before.



2014 – Present: PhD student University of Southampton.

2014: Graduated with First Class Honours Bsc Biochemistry. In depth research project: Neuropharmacology of stylet activity in the plant parasitic nematode Globodera Pallida.

2011-2014: Bsc Biochemistry University of Southampton.

My research interests include a wide range of topics, with a particular interest in membrane proteins structure and function. My PhD is on a relatively newly discovered family of membrane proteins known as GTG/GPHRs. These proteins are highly conserved throughout the kingdoms and are thought to have a role in Golgi pH regulation in animals, via working as voltage-gated anion channels. My research involves determining the function of these GTGs in plants as well as locating any key conserved residues within the protein necessary for its function.
