Dr. Mike Tomlinson is a senior lecturer at the School of Biosciences within the University of Birmingham. He obtained his PhD at the University of Oxford, where he worked on tetraspanins in immune cells. In 1996 he moved to the United States to study signal transduction by immune cell antigen receptors as a post-doctoral researcher, firstly at DNAX Research Institute in Palo Alto, and secondly at the University of California in San Francisco.
In 2004, Dr Tomlinson returned to the United Kingdom to start his own research group at the University of Birmingham Medical School. His research first focused on the regulation of platelet receptor signalling by tetraspanin microdomains. In 2009 he joined the School of Biosciences and obtained a Senior Fellowship from the British Heart Foundation, to study the organisation of platelet and endothelial cell surface proteins by tetraspanin microdomains in the context of atherosclerosis.
