Welcome to Webb Research Group

Research interests

The Webb research group is an interdisciplinary research group that uses the tools of both synthetic chemistry and molecular biology to gain understanding of living systems and their regulation. We are also interested in development of new biophysical techniques and therapeutic modalities.

Research areas

  • Biophysical characterisation of proteins

  • (Chemo)enzymatic protein modification

  • Bioorganic chemistry and phosphohistidine

  • Biosynthetic regulation

  • Other Projects
