Louise Walport

PHYSICAL SCIENCE GROUP LEADER

Louise obtained her PhD in chemical biology from the University of Oxford in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Chris Schofield and Prof. Christina Redfield. She used a combination of biochemical and structural techniques to study the structure and function of ‘reader’ and ‘eraser’ proteins involved in epigenetics. 

Following further postdoctoral work in Oxford, she obtained a Global Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship to work in Japan for two years in the laboratory of Hiroaki Suga at the University of Tokyo, with a return year in Chris Schofield’s laboratory at the University of Oxford. In 2018, she established her lab at the Francis Crick Institute in a joint appointment with the Chemistry Department at Imperial College London.
