Dr Christopher Walker graduated from the University of Auckland (New Zealand) having undertaken his PhD studies investigating the role of the calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in obesity. His subsequent postdoctoral research has involved both academic and commercially funded projects. He is currently a Lecturer in Biochemistry at the University of Auckland and has recently been awarded a prestigious Sir Charles Hercus health research fellowship.
His research interests are focused on exploring the pharmacology and signalling of CGRP and related receptors. His research aims to understanding how the signalling of these receptors controls physiological functions and how these signalling systems are involved in disorders including migraine and chronic pain.« Back to Editorial Board
