Nottingham Research Fellow, Faculty of Science
Nick received an MChem degree from the University of Southampton in 2004, before joining Prof. Stefan Howorka's group at UCL to investigate the chemical modification of oligonucleotides in 2005. He was awarded a Graduate Research Scholarship in 2008 and received his PhD in 2010. Nick remained at UCL as a PDRA under the joint supervision of Prof. Alethea Tabor and Prof. Helen Hailes to work on MRI and SPECT imaging of liposomal drug delivery. In 2013 he moved to Prof. Richard Payne's lab at the University of Sydney to develop novel peptide ligation methodologies. Nick took up a Nottingham Research Fellowship in October 2016 to focus on the chemical synthesis of diagnostic/therapeutic peptides and proteins.

The group's research activities focus on the chemical synthesis of therapeutic proteins. We're interested in the development and application of selenium-mediated peptide ligation to prepare and evaluate a broad range of targets. Our remit covers the investigation of proteins involved in cancer and ischemic stroke as well as various transmembrane sequences integral to viral pathogenicity. By exploiting the control afforded through a synthetic approach, we strive to probe the importance of post-translational modifications on the biological function of these selected proteins.
