The Northwood Charitable Trust – Small Grant

The Northwood Charitable Trust has just awarded Dr Samantha J. Pitt a small grant (£21,000) titled “Regulation of cardiac function; new mechanisms and novel ion channels”

This research will address the role of zinc signalling in regulating sarcoplasmic reticulum ion-channel function during excitation contraction coupling, and will characterise the potential detrimental role of zinc in cardiomyopathies.

Many thanks for supporting our research.
