Robert Halliwell's Biography



Robert Halliwell, Professor, University of The Pacific

Robert Halliwell teaches neuroscience & clinical pharmacology at the University of the Pacific; he previously held a lectureship in neuroscience at the University of Durham, England and a Research Fellowship at the University of California, Irvine. Dr Halliwell undertook graduate training in neurological science at UCL, University of London and in pharmacology at Ninewells Hospital & Medical School, University of Dundee (Scotland). His lab is conducting electrophysiological experiments to determine the properties of neurons derived from human stem cells; he has also published work in the history of medicine.

Neurons derived from human stem cells promise great advantages for drug discovery and safety testing, especially in the development of agents for neurological and psychiatric disorders. This presentation will describe recent data showing that human stem cells from a variety of sources can develop the morphological features of neurons and glia, display immunocytochemical markers and express a complex array of functional voltage- and ligand-gated ion channels; I will also consider the advantages and challenges of using different types of human stem cells to derive such neurons. Finally, data will be presented showing the sensitivity of human stem cells and their neural phenotypes to a range of clinically important psychotropic agents.
