- Biochemistry and Biophysics
Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry group in CMD/TDI Oxford specialises on chemical probe discovery projects, especially in the field of Epigenetics and Ubiquitin system. Main target areas are acetyl-lysine reader domains and E3 ligases. The group supports the wide variety of screening assays developed for most of the targets. The in-depth characterization of drug candidates relies on a series of biophysical techniques established for accurate measurements of thermodynamics of and kinetic parameters of binding. The group also supports and extend the focused libraries of small molecular weight ligands for proteins of interest.
