Biography

Leigh Stoddart gained her PhD (2007) from the University of Glasgow, UK under the supervision of Professor Graeme Milligan. In 2009, she took up a post-doctoral position with Professor Stephen Hill and Dr Stephen Briddon within the Cell Signalling Research Group at the University of Nottingham, UK. The main focus of her research has been in the characterisation of fluorescent small molecule agonists and antagonists for GPCRs and the development of novel techniques that utilise these ligands. Her current research involves the use of NanoBRET to probe various aspects of GPCR pharmacology, including probe dependence, binding kinetics and dimerization. Leigh was named the BPS and ASCEPT Outstanding Young Investigator in 2015.

Current Research

My current research is focused on using advanced imaging techniques to understand the membrane dynamics of G protein-coupled receptors in single cells. In addition, I am interested in the development of fluorescent ligands and ligand-directed labelling approaches to study endogenously expressed GPCRs.
