Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Kerrie Ford studied Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, specialising in Genetics. She remained in Cambridge to do her PhD with Dr Howard Baylis in the Department of Zoology, studying the role and regulation of the IP3 receptor using the model organism C. elegans. After a brief stint working as a trainee Clinical Scientist in the Bristol Genetics Laboratory, she took up a postdoctoral research position with Professor Richard Vaughan-Jones in Oxford. Her current research focuses on the interaction between pH regulation and calcium signalling in ventricular myocytes in health and disease. In 2014 she was appointed as a Stipendiary Lecturer in Medicine at Somerville College.
