Dr Andrew Paul Stewart
I completed both my medical training and PhD at Christ’s. My PhD was undertaken in the department of pharmacology under supervision of Professor Mike Edwardson. It focused on using a variety of techniques, in particular atomic force microscopy, to study the structure of a number of proteins. I am particularly interested in ion channels and other proteins involved in renal physiology and pathology, such as the epithelial sodium channel and uromodulin. I am currently working as an academic clinician at Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridge where I work with Professor Fiona Karet on the structure and function of urinary exosomes and their potential as biomarkers of renal disease.
