Research Interest

  • Molecular pharmacology of ion channels; electrophysiological properties of neurons derived from stem cells.

Dr. Robert F. Halliwell received his bachelor of science from the University of Stirling in Scotland in 1983, his master of science from University College London in 1985, and his doctor of philosophy from the University of Dundee in Scotland in 1992.

Dr. Halliwell joined the Pacific Pharmacy family in 2002.

Robert F. Halliwell was the coeditor for a special issue of Neurochemistry International on "The Potential of Stem Cells for 21st Century Neuroscience." His coeditor is John M. Haynes of Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

Robert Halliwell had his paper "Neuropharmacological properties of neurons derived from human stem cells" published in the journal Neurochemistry International. Coauthors were Mu Shan '14 and Ryoko Hirakawa '09, former postdoctoral research assistant Leanne Coyne, and Stefan A. Przyborski of Durham University.
