Emeritus Professor of Human Physiology
Clive Ellory graduated in Biochemistry from the University of Bristol in 1964. He completed a research degree with Peter Caldwell at Bristol in Zoology in 1967. Subsequently, he worked with Richard Keynes in Cambridge, first at the ARC Research Institute at Babraham, and then in the Physiological Laboratory as a University Lecturer and Fellow of Queens' College. Periods at this time were also spent at Yale, in the laboratory of Joe Hoffman and in Nice, with Michel Lazdunski and Brahim Lahlou. He migrated to Oxford in 1985 to take up the post of Reader in Human Physiology, and is now Emeritus Professor of Cellular Physiology, and an Emeritus Fellow of Corpus Christi College. He was awarded Sc.D. (Cantab, 1995) and D.Sc. (Oxon, 1996) and elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences in 1999.
His research is focused on understanding membrane transport of ions and non-electrolytes, particularly in systems that change under physiological and pathological challeneges. These include hibernation, salt adaptation, malaria, cancer, and sickle cell disease.
