Professor Nick Brindle

Professor Brindle’s expertise centres on how proteins work, particularly how proteins interact with each other at the molecular level. These interactions are crucially important in controlling cell activities and play roles in diseases. Using this understanding we seek to develop new drugs.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, Professor Brindle’s team are developing new drugs and approaches to block the virus by using directed evolution and protein engineering techniques to understand how proteins on the COVID-19 virus interact with cells to cause infection and disease.
