Projects per year
We are interested in the structure and function of bio-macromolecules in biological systems. We use methods of computational biochemistry and bioinformatics in areas such as antiviral/antimicrobial drug target characterisation and drug discovery.
Visiting researchers with their own funding are welcome. Additionally, I will support applications for research fellowships and PhD studentships via overseas or EU/UK funding organisations. Please see the Research Degrees page.
Protein Structure, Enzyme Kinetics, Nitrogen Metabolism, Fluorescence, Protein-Ligand Binding, Membrane Proteins, Single Molecule Methods, Computational Biochemistry, Industrial Enzymology
Commercial and public engagement
The book 'Molecular Modeling of Proteins' covers molecular dynamics simulations, force fields, normal modes and essential dynamics, free energy calculations, membrane proteins, protein structure determination, protein folding and drug design.
