Peter Bush graduated in pharmacology from Portsmouth before completing his Ph.D. degree in cell membrane transport from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland. In 1997, he joined Dr. Andrew Hall's group at the University of Edinburgh as a Research Fellow investigating chondrocyte volume regulation and cell morphology in relation to osteoarthritis and methods of chondroprotection following scalpel wounding. The last years of Dr. Bush's time in Edinburgh concentrated on identifying the membrane transport proteins responsible of growth plate chondrocyte volume increase and hence bone lengthening. In 2008, he was appointed as a Senior Lecturer (physiology) at the University of Brighton and continues to work in all the areas described previously using laser scanning confocal microscopy, live cell imaging, radio-tracer uptake experiments, and a range of histological techniques.
