Dr Ruth Norman


I was appointed as a Teaching Fellow at the University of Leeds in 2020

During my postdoctoral career at Leeds I have been supported by a number of British Heart Foundation project grants studying the role of the cardiac caveolae in response to beta-adrenergic stimulation and mechanical stretch

I obtained my PhD from the University of Leeds in 2016 in Cardiac Physiology. This was funded through an Anatomy Demonstrator PhD scholarship which involved 4 years of teaching anatomy to Medical and Biomedical Students
