Chris read Chemistry as an undergraduate and graduate student at the University of Cambridge (St John's College). Following his doctoral research into the mechanisms of protein misfolding and aggregation in the group of Prof Chris Dobson, Chris joined Prof John Christodoulou in the Department of Structural and Molecular Biology at UCL, leading efforts to apply NMR spectroscopy to the study of protein synthesis and co-translational folding of nascent chains on the ribosome and within living cells. He joined the UCL School of Pharmacy as a Lecturer in Biomolecular NMR in June 2022.
Sophia graduated from UNC where she completed research in the Pielak lab on the crowding effects of sugar-based polymers on protein-complex formation. Sophia's current research focuses on the application of NMR lineshape analysis methods to accelerate fragment lead development.
