Congratulations to joint Wilson-Bayliss group student Robert Dawber who recently defended his PhD thesis on the topic of peptidomimetic modulators of the interactions of Aurora A with intrinsically disorder proteins.
Congratulations to joint Wilson-Nelson group student Suzanne Renwick who, following her viva, becomes the latest member of our group to defend a PhD thesis.
Congratulations to Eleanor who won a prize for her oral presentation ‘Reconfigurable Polymers Via Supramolecular Self-Sorting’ at the School of Chemistry Annual postgraduate conference.
Andy Wilson visited Notre Dame 6th form College in Leeds and gave a talk to their lower sixth students about his career. During his visit to Notre Dame, Andy outlined the drug discovery process and explained the important role that chemists play in this process. Andy highlighted the particular challenges...
Congratulations to Rob who has won first prize in the #RSCChemBio category of the 2022 #RSCPoster Twitter Conference for his poster on the development of peptidometic inhibitors of the Aurora A/N-Myc Protein-protein interactions. The full list of winners can be found here. Thanks to Errant Science for their cool cartoon...
Rob Dawber gave the talk ‘Investigating key protein-protein interactions of the Aurora-A Kinase’ at the BACR & RSC CBBG meeting on 2 December 2021. This virtual meeting was a joint event between the RSC Chemical Biology and Bioorganic Chemistry (CBBG) group and the British Association for Cancer Research (BACR). The...
Congratulations to Kris Hetherington who, following her viva, becomes the latest member of the Wilson group to defend a PhD thesis.
Emma’s review “Visualizing and trapping transient oligomers in amyloid assembly pathways,” just published in Biophysical Chemistry, has been the subject of an Elsevier news article. Read the article here.
Andy is excited to be leading a ground-breaking, new project on deciphering the function of intrinsically disordered protein regions in a cellular context.
