Enzymes are responsible for the wealth and diversity of natural products we utilise today, from fine chemicals such as drugs to materials for clothing or building. They are also involved in decomposing and recycling these materials, through the degradative pathways of animals and microorganisms. Can we harness the power of enzymes to create new and more powerful medicines, clean up and recycle our waste and put our industrial production on a more sustainable footing?

We're very pleased to announce that Postdoctoral Research Fellow at UCL Biochemical Engineering Dr Jack Jeffries will be taking on the role of Lecturer in Biocatalysis and Biocatalyst Engineering this spring. His new role as Lecturer in Biocatalysis and Biocatalyst Engineering will include Delivering the 1st year undergraduate core module Biochemistry and Molecular biology and leading the development of biocatalysis and sustainable bioprocess research at the MFL.

These taster lectures will give you a chance to find out about the subjects we teach and research, you'll be able to meet our lecturers and researchers and you can put your questions to the team. We look forward to welcoming you.
