Our laboratory uses the techniques of protein chemistry, molecular genetics and biophysics. Much of our work is centered on membrane proteins, in particular channels and pores. We investigate both the fundamental properties of these proteins and their applications in biotechnology.
Several of our studies are collaborations with other laboratories in the UK, USA and Europe. There are currently 15 postdocs, 8 graduate students and a technician in the laboratory, from 10 different countries.
News from the Lab:
- Our new paper ‘Pim kinase inhibitors evaluated with a single-molecule engineered nanopore sensor’ has been published in Angewandte Chemie Int Ed.
Bayley lab members attended the Royal Society event this May celebrating past and future women scientists.
- We welcome visiting students Sandra Ionescu and Andrea Martinez Vernon to the group!
We welcome postdoc Hiroko Tamagaki to the group.
- Postdoc Anja Henning and rotation student Kirsti Brisk are leaving the lab. We wish them all the best in their new posts!
