Kate Dunning

Scientific Writer and Facilitator

Professional Services role

I support the researchers of the Ludwig Oxford Branch throughout the process of drafting and submitting research manuscripts and grant proposals. I also help to produce various other forms of scientific documentation and written reports.


I obtained an MChem in Chemistry from the University of York, before moving to Strasbourg, France to undertake a masters at the interface of Biology and Chemistry. I then carried out a PhD in Molecular Neurobiology at the University of Strasbourg, under the supervision of Dr. Thomas Grutter. My research centred around the molecular structure and function of P2X receptors, a family of ligand-gated ion channels activated by extracellular ATP, with particular focus on the P2X7 subtype, which is a therapeutic target for a variety of diseases. Following this, I worked as a bilingual Medical Writer in the Public Health and Clinical Research departments of Strasbourg University Hospital, drafting clinical trial protocols, funding applications, and manuscripts for a range of therapeutic areas.
