Our group undertakes research in chemical biology, chemical proteomics, protein and peptide chemistry, and medicinal chemistry and drug discovery. From October 2015, our lab welcomes the group of Dr Anna Barnard, who is a Imperial Junior Research Fellow in the Department. Please visit Anna's website for further details.

The group is highly multidisciplinary, with researchers working on synthesis and structural biology, proteomics and cell biology, on in vitro and in vivo systems, often undertaking work in collaboration with labs at Imperial in Medicine, Engineering and Natural Sciences, and groups at institutes and companies across the UK and worldwide. Group membership is also highly diverse - more than 145 researchers have worked in our group over the years, encompassing 28 nationalities.

Please visit the Tate Group Website for further details.
