The British Association of Psychopharmacology awards two bursaries each year to commemorate Robert Kerwin’s efforts in supporting and mentoring early career researchers. Nicola Hall, Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Psychiatry, has been awarded the Robert Kerwin International Conference Bursary.

Using the award, Nicola will be attending and presenting her work at the Society of Biological Psychiatry meeting in New York next year.

Nicola's postdoctoral work focuses on the role of voltage-gated calcium channels in the human brain and explores mRNA splicing as a mechanism of tissue specificity in gene expression. The ultimate aim of this research is to identify brain-enriched calcium channel isoforms that could be the targets for brain-selective treatments.

 

I am honoured that the BAP has awarded me this bursary and I am excited to present my work at the Society of Biological Psychiatry meeting. My background is in molecular biology so this will be my first international psychiatry conference. I'm looking forward to learning about the latest research and meeting new colleagues and potential collaborators. - Nicola Hall, Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Psychiatry.
