Samuel Bose B. Sc.

Sam Bose graduated in 2014 with a first class honours degree in Physiological Science from the University of Bristol. As an undergraduate, Sam gained extensive experience in electrophysiological techniques including patch-clamp recording and has received multiple awards for his undergraduate research including a Rob Clarke award from the UK Physiological Society. Sam is currently working towards his PhD and is the recipient of a Medical Research Council UK Industrial CASE studentship that forms a collaboration between the laboratory of Dr David Sheppard, University of Bristol and the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research, Cambridge, MA. Sam's current research focusses on studying the function and pharmacology of CFTR using techniques including high resolution single-channel patch-clamp and automated electrophysiology. His PhD project explores the function and pharmacology of CFTR orthologues from diverse species with a view to using species differences to understand the mechanism of action of small-molecule CFTR modulators.
