  • Professor of Neuroscience
  • Neuro, Physiology & Pharmacology
  • Div of Biosciences
  • Faculty of Life Sciences

Stephanie has been at UCL since 1999, where she joined the Pharmacology Department as a postdoctoral researcher in single channel biophysics with Professor David Colquhoun, after which she moved to work with Professor Dimitri Kullmann at UCL Institute of Neurology (ION). She obtained her first Fellowship from the Worshipful company of Pewterers in 2005, and her second fellowship from the Royal Society in 2010.  In 2018 she moved the the UCL School of Pharmacy (SoP) to become Professor in Translational Neuroscience, and Head of the Research Department of Pharmacology, with the aim of streamlining the translation of gene therapy research into clinical applications. In 2021 she moved again and became Head of the Research Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology (NPP), in the Division of Biosciences. She is currently working to build links between NPP, ION and SoP, as well as working with the Translational Research Office to build a virtual pipeline leading from basic science to clinical delivery to support translational research across UCL.

Research Summary

Stephanie Schorge has a long standing interest in how mutations in ion channels can cause neurological disease, and conversely how manipulating ion channels can be used to treat disease. Recently her work has focused on a developing a portfolio of gene therapy approaches to treat severe drug-refractory epilepsy, and along with several close collaborators this approach is now funded through a first in human trial due to begin recruiting patients in 2022.
