Research Interests

We are interested in host factors that are involved in protein folding, including chaperones and factors such as SERF that facilitate amyloid formation. We use a range of genetic, biochemical and biophysical tools including crystallography and NMR. We are also interested in directed evolution to evolve enzymes to tackle the problem of nicotine addiction.
