Profile -

Andrew joined Diamond in 2018 from the SGC in Oxford where he was a Senior Post-Doctoral Researcher in the group of Prof. Liz Carpenter.  While at the SGC Andrew worked upon human integral membrane proteins including ion channels, GPCRs, transporters and membrane enzymes.  He helped to develop and manage the pipeline process that has led to 9 human membrane protein structures to date.  Specifically focusing on ZMPSTE24, GLUT3 and K2Ps.
