Emily Johnson


After completing her BSc Neuroscience (1st class, Hons), Emily studied the role of T-type Ca2+ channels in proliferative cardiovascular disease for her PhD (University of Leeds). Having cemented a love for electrophysiology, she spent 5 years working as a post-doctoral Research Fellow, utilising her expertise with patch-clamp electrophysiology, optogenetics and 2-photon Ca2+ imaging, to address novel Neuroscience research questions.  A natural problem solver and collaborative researcher, Emily has a tenacious attitude useful for acquiring high-quality, reproducible data.
