Alex Demby

BA (Oxon)

DPhil Student


I am a medical student intercalating a DPhil in Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics. I completed my BA in Medical Sciences at the University of Oxford, including a dissertation on the influence of neuronal lineage on synaptic connectivity in cortex under the supervision of Professor Colin Akerman in the Department of Pharmacology.

Research Project

My research focuses on compartmentalised cAMP signalling in cardiac myocytes. I am investigating the effects of drugs used for heart failure on local cAMP signals and the coordination and regulation of these signals by G-protein coupled receptors.
