Kate Poole, PhD

University of New South Wales - Sydney

Dr Kate Poole is a Senior Lecturer at UNSW. She received her PhD from the University of Adelaide in 2002 before moving to Germany to undertake postdoctoral studies. Kate is studying the role of mechanically activated ion channels in cellular sensing of physical stimuli. Kate’s research addresses how mechanically activated channels function in the interface between cells and their substrates, and how manipulation of these signal transduction pathways impacts the homeostatic maintenance of cartilage as well as other physiological systems.
