Oxford 2023 – Career talk

When a former undergraduate student emails to see if you would be happy to give a career talk in Oxford, I didn’t even had to think! Laura Cunningham is now a Post Doc in the group of Prof. Fletcher as well as being the President of Oxford Women in Chemistry. I was absolutely honoured that […]

Bürgenstock 2023

Another wonderful Bürgenstock conference this year. As Fran is part of the organising committee Pablo got to go as one of just three assistants and has the most challenging task of writing the names of the people asking questions to the speakers on the board! And he did a brilliant job! Looking forward the next […]

Christmas dinner 2022

Another great year comes to a close for the group, I am so grateful to be surrounded by an excellent team of young scientists  that truly make my job very very easy. I’m looking forward to another year together! Related Posts

MetRaZyme Doctoral Network is live!

The EU Doctoral Network coordinated by Prof. Nico Bruns in Darmstad has kicked off!  Metal-containing radical enzymes creates a PhD school across leading European universities that trains the next generation of scientists capable of tackling the design, development and implementation of novel enzymatic reactions in a holistic approach. It brings together computational bioscientists, bioinorganic and […]


Biocat2022 Hamburg hosted the 10th Conference in Biocatalysis. Incredible networking and cutting edge science. Lucia presented her first (international) poster with Chris as co-author and Fran gave an invited talk where she showcased the importance of immobilisation and the new (almost published) work on spheroplasts (stay tuned!). inSEIT was also introduced to the audience!

Summer 2022 Group day out

CCCE 2022 in Calgary

First long flight in years as we travelled to Calgary for the Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition (CCCE 2022). Great to go with colleagues, meeting new people, and seeing old friends. While the weather was not the best, the symposium on Enzyme Catalysis organised by Prof. David Palmer and our former group member Dr. Daniela […]

The inSEIT adventure

Over the last year, we have been working on a new adventure… We realised that the majority of our industrial projects are based on developing efficient immobilisation protocols for specific enzymes which may then be used in continuous. We have more than 10 years experience with different immobilisation strategies on a range of different supports, and recently we started developing computational tools […]
