Simon G. Patching
Simon G. Patching obtained a BSc degree with honors in Biomedical Chemistry from Sheffield Hallam University, UK, in 1998 and a PhD degree in Chemistry from the University of Leeds, UK, in 2002. Since 2001, Dr Patching has been a Research Fellow, Senior Research Fellow and Independent Investigator in the School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Leeds, UK. Dr Patching's research interests include structure-function investigation of membrane proteins using a range of chemical, biochemical, and biophysical techniques; solid- and solution-state NMR spectroscopy; design and synthesis of novel molecules for biological testing and of compounds with stable isotope labels (3H, 13C, 15N, 19F, 31P) for NMR experiments and with radiolabels (3H, 14C) for ligand binding and transport assays; development and application of labelling and sample preparation strategies for NMR experiments on membrane proteins and their ligands; development and application of biological assays; drug design and discovery.
