Principal Investigator

Dr Jeremy Woodward is a lecturer in the Department of Integrative Biomedical Sciences, division of Medical Biochemistry. His research combines biochemical approaches, X-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy to study the structure and function of large macromolecular complexes. He is currently involved in developing high-throughput structure determination and biochemical characterisation techniques to study the evolutionary implications of quaternary structure remodelling.
