Congratulations to Laura Nadine Schuhmacher who, as part of the Cambridge BBSRC DTP programme, has been awarded the Department of Pharmacology David James Studentship.

During his life, Dr David James was a much-loved and well-respected departmental administrator at the Department of Pharmacology; today his legacy continues to make a difference to the work of the Department and Laura has received this award in recognition of her excellent achievement, within the BBSRC DTP programme, in the field of Pharmacology. She is pursuing her PhD in Dr. Ewan Smith’s laboratory in the Department  where she is studying the molecular mechanisms by which sensory neurones detect noxious stimuli and in particular how acid activates nociceptors in both physiological and pathophysiological states.
