Current Experience

  • Chief Scientific Officer
    Since April 2011

  • Permanent Member of Scientific Board
    Since March 2011
    As a scientific board member of Volition Rx , I provide provide scientific intelligence, ideas and suggestions to the VolitionRx within the framework of the scientific and business activities of the company. I also endeavor to influence the strategic aims to ensure that the necessary scientific and research resources are in place for the VolitionRx to meet its objectives

  • Reader in Molecular Biology
    Since November -0001
    My research focuses on investigating the structure and function of RNA polymerases (RNAPs). These enzymes play a key role in the regulation of gene expression programs under normal and pathological conditions. During the last decade we have developed numerous unique methodologies. These currently include the in vitro assembly of functional RNAPs from recombinant subunits, high-throughput (robot-assisted) mutagenesis profiling fo protein domains and sophisticated molecular dynamics analyses.

Past Experience

  • Scientific Board Member
    January 2011 --- January 2011

  • Postdoctoral fellow
    January 1990 --- January 1994
    During my postdoctoral studies in Robert Tjian's laboratory I was involved in the characterization of the TFIID basal transcription factor complex. My work led to the molecular cloning of several TFIID subunits and identified a variety of protein-protein interactions between them.
