Professor Frances Ashcroft FRS.

Electric signals in our cells drive everything we think, feel or do. These signals are produced by some amazing proteins which are currently at the forefront of scientific research. The ion channels are found in every cell on earth and govern all aspects of our lives.

Professor Frances Ashcroft FRS weaves real-life stories with the latest scientific findings, including an account of her own discoveries, to explain the fundamental role of ion channels in our bodies and why they truly are the ‘sparks of life’.
