Reader in Chemical Biology, Dr Ali Tavassoli, is the newly elected President of the Royal Society of Chemistry's BioOrganic Group.

He will head a committee which represents the interests of the thousands of chemists in the UK and around the world who work in this field.

The group's activities include organising several meetings each year including the biannual Chemistry of the Cell conference, the biannual Firbush meeting in Scotland and specific meetings for PhD students and postdoctoral researchers to present their work.

Ali leads a multidisciplinary chemical biology research group, jointly based in Chemistry and Cancer Sciences in Medicine at the University of Southampton. Members are interested in understanding cellular protein-protein interaction networks, and developing molecules that tackle diseases such as cancer and HIV by targeting these protein networks
