Biography

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 2009. 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, based in the School of Chemistry, in October 2016, and was promoted to Assistant Professor of Biological Chemistry in 2019.
