We are delighted to welcome Dr Enas Behiry and Dr Andrew Wood to the group! Enas returns to to our enzyme mechanisms project while Andy will add LOV domain expertise to our work on genetically encoded photoswitches.

The Journal of the American Chemical Society has spotlit our recent communication. They conclude that our study suggests that proteins motions are not universally coupled to reaction kinetics but offers clues into the types of evolutionary trade-offs that may occur in enzymes to gain thermal stability.

Chemical biology is the application of chemical techniques to solve biological problems. In the Allemann laboratories we apply a range of chemical techniques to answer questions relating to the extraordinary catalytic power of enzymes and the control of biological processes.

We are always seeking bright and highly motivated students and postdocs to join our dynamic, multidisciplinary research group to work on any of our current projects. Informal enquiries are welcome. If you are interested in joining the Allemann Laboratories, click here for a list of vacancies.
