Research interests

Research Interests

We specialise in understanding the solution behaviour of biological macromolecules and their complexes. We do this by utilising a number of biophysical techniques to determine the solution shape of molecules and the strength, stoichiometry and architecture of the complexes they form.  We collaborate widely and offer expertise in the application of our core methodologies including:

  • Analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC)
  • Small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS)
  • Small angle neutron scattering (SANS)
  • Hydrodynamic bead modelling (HBM)
