About Dr. Graham Ladds
Graham studied Biochemistry at the University of Birmingham before completing a Ph.D. in yeast pheromone signaling at Warwick. He continued to work at Warwick as a post-doc studying pro-hormone convertases before securing a 5-year independent fellowship funded through the NHS. This project enabled him to return to his interest in GPCRs.
He progressed through the ranks at Warwick to become an Associate Professor before leaving in 2015 to join the Department of Pharmacology at Cambridge, where he is also a Fellow of St John’s College. In 2020, he was promoted to a Readership/Professor in Receptor Pharmacology and was elected a Fellow of the British Pharmacological Society.
His research group uses a combination of pharmacological investigations and mathematical modeling to study factors that control agonist bias at GPCRs. These investigations have enabled him to foster strong collaborations with the pharmaceutical industry (GSK, Takada, and Firmenich) which have recently been enhanced through him being awarded a Royal Society Industry Fellowship to collaborate with AstraZeneca.
