Professor Xiaodong Zhang's research programme focuses on unravelling the mechanisms of macromolecular machines using a range of structural biology techniques including X-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy. She is particularly interested in large macromolecular assemblies involved in DNA processing, as well as the AAA (ATPase Associated with diverse cellular Activities) protein family. At present, her research focuses on three main areas: key components in DNA damage response, transcriptional regulation in bacteria, structure and mechanism of multifunctional p97

Dr Luke A. Yates    A post-doctoral research associate and faculty research fellow (July 2018) in the Zhang lab. I completed my D.Phil in Clinical Medicine at Oxford University (Merton College), but my research career has predominantly focused on investigating protein function using structural biology as a means to provide a mechanistic understanding in life and in disease.
