SCRM Seminar Room
Speaker Name
Prof Paul Martin
Speaker Organisation
Professor of Cell Biology, School of Biochemisty, University of Bristol

Paul Martin did his undergrad degree at Sussex and then a PhD with Julian Lewis at King’s London, before setting up lab in Oxford Anatomy; he moved to UCL Anatomy where he was for 10 years and then in 2003 moved to a joint position in Bristol’s Biochemistry and Physiology Departments.  His lab works on wound healing and has established models to study repair and inflammation in mouse and zebrafish and Drosophila. The current twin foci of his lab are to investigate the genetics and cell biology of wound inflammation, in order to learn how best to modulate the inflammatory response to prevent fibrosis, and identifying parallels between wound and cancer-triggered inflammation. He was elected a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2011 and to membership of EMBO in 2012.
