Primary professional setting:


I am Gardiner Professor of Biochemistry at University of Glasgow, where I have been based since 1986, and Deputy Head of the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences. My research group studies the pharmacology, function, and regulation of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and their interacting proteins. I have published more than 550 peer-reviewed articles on these topics that according to Google Scholar have been cited more than 35,000 times. I was elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1998 and of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2016. I was the recipient of the Ariens Award from the Dutch Pharmacological Society (NVF) in 2006 and awarded the JR Vane Medal for Pharmacology in 2016 by the British Pharmacological Society. I co-founded Caldan Therapeutics in 2015 with the aim to discover novel therapeutics for the treatment of type II diabetes and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and Keltic Pharma Therapeutics in 2020 to develop new therapeutics in areas ranging from malaria to inflammatory airway diseases.
