Martin Langley

Deputy Laboratory Manager/Senior Research Technician (protein biochemistry)

School of Dentistry


I have worked for the Dental School since 1988 and currently hold the post of Deputy Laboratory Manager.

I have a BTech HND in applied biological techniques from Brighton Technical College and a BSc(Hons) in Environmental and Applied Biology from Oxford Brooks University.  

While working at the Dental School I undertook and MPhil, awarded in 1997, with project title, "An in vitro study on the biology of proteoglycans produced by mineralising osteoblasts."

During his time with the department, I have undertaken virtually all forms of scientific research but have mainly focused on protein biochemistry.  This includes extraction and identification of proteins from dinosaur bone to forensic samples and mineralising bone cells to transglutaminase enzymes.
