Paul Hunter

Postdoctoral researcher


Paul Hunter is currently a post-doctoral researcher in the laboratory of Dr. Martin Meyer at KCL. Paul obtained a BSc in Biochemistry (2004) and a PhD (2008) from University of Warwick. Paul?s PhD, completed in the laboratory of Dr. Lorenzo Frigerio, used a holistic approach to study the localisation of membrane proteins within plant vacuoles using promoter targeting and in vivo fluorescence imaging.

After his PhD, Paul worked in a UKAS accredited industrial toxicology laboratory in London, before returning to his interest in molecular biology and in vivo fluorescence microscopy at the Department of Developmental Neurobiology as a research technician. Paul joined a team studying the role of synaptically localised cell adhesion proteins in zebrafish visual system development (2009-2011). During this time, Paul became interested in neuroimaging of zebrafish larvae, and used population-wide calcium imaging to study characteristics of the zebrafish visual system in response to simple stimuli. Paul is currently continuing these population-wide imaging strategies to study zebrafish seizures.
