Dr Charlotte McCarroll
Academic and research departmentsFaculty of Health and Medical Sciences, School of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Charlotte McCarroll graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2008 with distinction before embarking upon a rotating small animal medicine and surgery internship at the University of Liverpool. During her time at Liverpool she developed a passion for research and teaching which led her to return to Glasgow where she was awarded her Masters in 2010 and her PhD in 2013.
Her academic achievements have been focused on cardiac calcium handling, excitation-contraction coupling and cardiac arrhythmias in human ischaemia-reperfusion injury as well as the effects of Trypanosoma brucei infection on cardiac calcium handling.
Having been out of clinics focusing on physiological and medical research for ten years Charlotte returned to small animal clinical practice in Berkshire for a time to update her practical knowledge of the veterinary profession.
Charlotte was appointed as a new teaching fellow in preclinical sciences and veterinary education at Surrey in 2019 to combine her extensive knowledge of physiology with her recent clinical practical knowledge to help provide a comprehensive and well-rounded experience for Surrey vet students.
Charlotte is a keen award-winning advocate for diversity and inclusion within STEM and the veterinary profession. She has sat on the Athena SWAN committee at Glasgow, spoken at public events and volunteered for several LGBT+ in STEM and LGBT+ inclusion in sport organisations.
