Welcome to the Hagan Bayley Lab
Chemistry Research Laboratory | Department of Chemistry | University of Oxford

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 21 postdocs, 8 graduate students and a technician in the laboratory, from 10 different countries.

News from the Lab:
