Sir Alan Fersht’s current research uses an amalgam of protein engineering, structural biology, biophysics and chemistry to study the structure, activity, stability and folding of proteins, and the role of protein misfolding and instability in cancer and disease. He came to Bert’s lab as a Vallee Visiting Professor in 2008.
