Short introduction
Barry Denholm is a developmental biologist and physiologist, with a primary research interest in the genetic basis of organ form and function. He received his PhD in Developmental Genetics from Leicester University, and then carried out his postdoctoral work with Professor Helen Skaer out at the Universities of Sheffield and Cambridge. During this time he studied the insect Malpighian (renal) tubule as a simple model for organogenesis, and also pioneered the insect nephrocyte model for the study of human kidney diseases. He established his own lab in the Zoology Department, Cambridge in 2010 thanks to a Kidney Research UK fellowship. He then moved to the University of Edinburgh as a lecturer in 2014. His lab is funded by the Wellcome Trust, BBSRC, and Carnegie Trust.
