Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience
We have a number of internationally-renowned research groups whose work focuses on synaptic transmission, concentrating on ligand-gated ion channels, transporters and signaling molecules, the molecular biology of receptors and on presynaptic mechanisms of neurotransmission.

In Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience, UCL has an outstanding history of research on receptors, ion channels and synaptic transmission following seminal contributions from Katz, Miledi, Fatt, Huxley, Young, Clark, Gaddum, Schild and Black, and many others. We have always placed major emphasis on the quantitative analysis of drug-receptor interactions and synaptic transmission. This has now evolved to the cellular and molecular analyses of membrane protein function (trafficking, signaling) and investigation of central synaptic transmission (receptor-associated molecules, neurotransmitter release, turnover of synaptic and extrasynaptic receptors). These form the cornerstones of our current research programmes.
