Membrane behaviour of CNS penetrating drugs

My research uses simulation and NMR techniques to study how P-glycoprotein, a primary cause of multi-drug resistance, is able to transport many clinically important therapeutic substances away from their site of action. This may be a useful model for understanding how therapeutic drugs may be delivered appropriately and effectively across the blood brain barrier (BBB). My work is jointly supervised by Dr. Phil Biggin and Dr. Jason Schnell.

My research is funded by the Wellcome Trust Graduate Programme in Structural Biology, which I joined in 2009.


I completed a BSc in Biochemistry and subsequently an MRes in Structural Molecular Biology at Imperial College London. I am currently a graduate student at Lincoln College, Oxford.
