Geoff Burnstock

Professor Geoffrey Burnstock proposed the purinergic hypothesis, describing what is probably the most primitive (oldest) signalling pathway in the body. He cloned the first purinergic receptor in the early ’90s, and is now excited about the pathophysiology of these receptors, and especially their application to potential treatments for many diseases, including epilepsy, Alzheimer’s and cystic fibrosis, as well as pain management.


I love coming up with new hypotheses
