Welcome to the Zhang/Freemont Labs
We are a multidisciplinary laboratory interested in understanding how the three-dimensional structure of proteins relates to their function. Using a variety of techniques, we work on determining the structures of proteins and multi-protein complexes to near-atomic detail. We also employ a wide variety of biochemical techniques to enable collection and analysis of functional data. The use of complementary techniques enables us to build detailed models that explain the structure/function relationships that exist in our target proteins.
The laboratory unites the groups of Prof. Xiaodong Zhang and Prof. Paul S Freemont. We are part of the Section of Structural Biology within the Department of Medicine at Imperial College. We are also associated with the Centre for Structural Biology.
