Denis BurdakovBA, DPhil
Dr. Denis studied medicine and physiology at Oxford (Gibbs Prize, 2001). Remaining at Oxford, he completed his PhD in the Department of Physiology, with Frances Ashcroft FRS. He then worked with Alex Verkhratsky at Manchester, and in 2004, was awarded a Royal Society Research Fellowship to establish a research programme on biophysics of sleep and appetite networks, which he held first at Manchester and then at Cambridge.
