Jim holds a Master of Biochemistry degree from the University of Bath and completed his PhD on voltage gated sodium channel NaV1.9 in visceral nociception at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London. He worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Neuroscience and Pain Research Unit in Pfizer before joining Ewan St.John Smith's lab in 2016. His current project uses a variety of techniques to understand the molecular constituents of visceral nociception in the gastrointestinal tract.
