Summary

 

Summary

The group’s research interests cover a range of topics including eukaryotic protein folding and single molecule approaches to protein dynamics and protein counting. Everything we do involves interdisciplinary approaches to biological research problems – we collaborate with physicists, mathematicians and engineers across Imperial College.

We were founder members of the  Centre for Doctoral Training in Chemical Biology and the Institute of Chemical Biology. The EPSRC-funded CDT started life in 2003 and was recently renewed for a 4th round of student intake from 2019-2024. In the first three CDT programmes we trained around 150 PhDs in Chemical Biology subjects ranging from optics, spectroscopies, microfluidics and other physical science-based platforms to biological problems such as artificial vesicles/cells and cancer drug discovery.
