With a background in biological sciences and experience using a broad range of web technologies, Tom is developing the MemProtMD pipeline and web interface. Tom is a DPhil Student on the EPSRC's Systems Biology Doctoral Training Centre.
Phill's research focuses on using molecular dynamics simulations to study the properties of membrane proteins. After using coarse-grained simulations extensively to study membrane-bound proteins, Phill built the MemProtMD pipeline to automate the process of assembling lipid bilayers around membrane-bound proteins.
In addition to his role as head of the Biochemistry Department, Mark heads up a group within the Structural Bioinformatics and Computational Biochemistry Unit (SBCB) specialising in using molecular dynamics simulations to study the structure and function of membrane proteins.
