Prof. Antony Pickering

University Of Bristol, UK

Tony is a Geordie expat, long exiled in the South-West.  He is a practicing anaesthetist and pain clinician. He leads the Anaesthesia, Pain and Critical Care research group at The University of Bristol. His research investigates the brainstem and spinal cord organisation of mission-critical control circuits regulating key sensory and autonomic functions.  His team uses genetic circuit manipulation approaches to define the operating principles of these evolutionarily ancient systems in rodents and seeks to apply this knowledge in human experimental medicine investigations and clinical trials.
