PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR

David Klenerman

Professor Sir David Klenerman

David Klenerman's research is focused on developing and applying biophysical methods to biological and biomedical problems. His work using fluorescence and scanning probe microscopy has provided new insights into a variety of biomolecular complexes as well as the processes of protein folding and misfolding. David has also developed techniques to image individual protein complexes on the surface of living cells to follow the processes occurring as the adaptive immune response is triggered. These methods are now being used to study neurodegenerative disease.

David is a research fellow at the Royal Society, a fellow at the Academy of Medical Sciences and a fellow at Christ's College.
