Dr Laura Sadofsky is a Senior Lecturer in Respiratory Medicine in the Centre for Atherothrombotic and Metabolic Research. She is the programme director for the MSc in Pharmacology and Education, co-lead of the Athena SWAN committee and deputy chair of the postgraduate programmes board in the Hull York Medical School.
Dr Laura Sadofsky's group is interested in the role of ion channels, specifically the thermo-TRPs (Transient Receptor Potential ion channels) and the purinoceptors, in cough and airways inflammation. Her laboratory is currently using human cells and tissue to develop models of the human airways. Using these models, they hopes to better understand the changes which occur in the airways in response to viruses as well as environmental stimuli and pharmaceuticals.
