Charlotte Deane

Professor Structural Bioinformatics, Oxford

Charlotte was originally trained as a chemist, before starting a PhD in Bioinformatics at Cambridge. This was followed by two years at UCLA as a Wellcome Trust Research Fellow. In 2002 she became a lecturer at Oxford in the Department of Statistics. She has set up three graduate programmes at Oxford, the first an MSc in Bioinformatics and then in 2007 she took on the Directorship of the Doctoral Training Centre in Systems Biology in 2007. In 2010 she established the Industrial Doctoral Centre. 

Research Interests: 

All of my research is multi disciplinary and involved the application of statistical, mathematical and computational techniques to problems related to biology and medicine. I am particularly interested in proteins, my research covers several areas in protein structure prediction and protein interaction networks, combining both theoretical work and empirical analyses. Of particular interest is the concept of protein structure evolution; predicting protein structure and investigating the properties of protein interaction networks. My computational research is furthered through
extensive experimental collaboration alongside close industrial partners include UCB, Roche & Tripos.
