Dr Matthew Jenner Research Group


Research in the Jenner Lab focuses on the application of mass spectrometry, in combination with other analytical and structural techniques, to solve complex biological problems.

Our primary interest concerns the enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of polyketide and non-ribosomal peptide natural products – this includes a fundamental understanding of their structures, mechanisms and protein-protein interactions.
