He uses a multidisciplinary approach spanning ion channel biophysics, mouse transgenesis, genetic analysis, computational modeling and in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology. 

The free lecture will begin promptly at 6.30pm and finish at approximately 7.45pm, including a question and answer session.
