Speaker information

Dr Sarah Harris,University of Leeds,Current major projects include: DNA supercoiling and topology, Developing new method for mesoscale modelling of biomolecules, Calculating configurational entropy change in biomolecular recognition

Prof David Roper,University of Warwick,Research interests: David Roper is a former MRC Career Development Award fellow at the University of York and now Professor of Biochemistry and Structural Biology at the University Warwick. The Roper group uses structural biology techniques, principally X-ray structural determination, in combination with molecular biology and biochemical approaches, to investigate the molecular basis of microbial physiology in relation to antimicrobial resistance. Current areas of research include and bacterial cell wall (peptidoglycan) biosynthesis and antibiotic resistance signalling systems as well as targeting tRNA synthetases in bacterial pathogens.

Prof Mark Sansom,University of Oxford,Research Themes: Our Research Themes reflect the broad areas in which we have particular strengths and interests. All research groups have a primary affiliation to one theme but many work in areas that fall under another theme, reflected in a secondary affiliation. The themes help to foster and strengthen interactions between groups working on related research areas, through seminars and other events. They are also intended to provide a framework for academic leadership and research mentoring to early career academics, postdoctoral researchers and students.

Dr Ivo Tews,University of Southampton. Research interests:Vitamin B6 Biosynthesis, Protein transport across cell membranes, Mycobacterial Adenylyl Cyclases.
