Prof. Simon George Webster



Location: Brambell D28

Phone: 2308


Dr Simon Webster runs a well established group focussing on the study of crustacean endocrinology. The laboratory has an international reputation with regard to the study of neuropeptides involved in the control of moulting, reproduction and energy metabolism, using contemporary molecular techniques. A recent and exciting research theme in this group concerns the elucidation of the molecular mechanisms controlling the "biological clocks" in intertidal crustaceans, which drive daily and tidal rhythms of locomotor (swimming) activity.
