Dr Webb is Principal Lecturer in Pharmacology at the Leicester School of Pharmacy, Faculty of Health & Life Sciences. She is also the Programme Leader for the MPharm within the School of Pharmacy.
Tania graduated from the University of Wales with a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry and then obtained a PhD in Molecular Neurobiology from Cambridge University.
During her doctoral studies she cloned and functionally characterised two novel G protein coupled receptors, identifying them as P2Y receptors. She then went on to an Astra Zeneca funded post- doctoral position at the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine, London; where she developed an interest in the molecular pharmacology of G protein coupled receptors.
She has subsequently received funding from the Wellcome Trust and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council to study the functional properties of this receptor class, most recently their dimerization. She specialises in teaching pharmacogenomics and is experienced in the expression of therapeutic targets in mammalian cells.
