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 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.

Current Research

The group's research activities focus on the chemical synthesis of native and engineered peptides and proteins. We're interested in the development and application of synthetic tools to prepare and evaluate a broad range of targets. Current projects include the investigation of proteins involved in cancer, inflammation and ischemic stroke as well as methods to functionalise native and non-native residues.
