Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Sciences

Professor Alistair Mathie is the Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Sciences within which are seven Schools: Biosciences, Computing, Engineering and Digital Arts, Medway School of Pharmacy (joint with the University of Greenwich), Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science, Physical Sciences and Sport and Exercise Sciences. His Personal Assistant is Joanna Walpole.

Alistair Mathie is a Professor of Pharmacology and Cell Biology at the Medway School of Pharmacy.

Alistair carried out his PhD research at the University of Leicester (1981-1984) after which he spent five years as a postdoctoral research associate at University College London (UCL) studying the biophysical properties of ligand- and voltage-gated ion channels in single, isolated mammalian neurons using patch-clamp and whole-cell electrophysiological recording techniques. From 1989-1991 he held a Fogarty International Research Fellowship at the University of Washington in Seattle, where the major focus of his research was to apply his experience in electrophysiology to study the intracellular mechanisms activated by neurotransmitters which couple to G-proteins and how these can regulate the activity of voltage-gated ion channels.

In 1991, Alistair was appointed Lecturer in Pharmacology at the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine then, following merger, a Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology at UCL. In 1999, he moved to Imperial College London where he took up a position there as Reader in Molecular Neuroscience. In 2007, he was appointed Professor of Pharmacology and Cell Biology, Head of Biological Sciences and Director of Research at the Medway School of Pharmacy.
