Simon J Hubbard
I am a Professor in the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health at the University of Manchester. My scientific career has taken me from a PhD in Biochemistry at UCL, London, via the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, back to Manchester in the UK where I undertook a Wellcome Trust fellowship, before gaining a Lectureship in 1998. My research covers themes in computational and systems biology and bioinformatics. We apply computational approaches to the study of biological systems and molecules, and my particular areas of interests are broadly in the areas of protein and genome bioinformatics including quantitative proteomics, regulation of gene expression (and particularly translation from mRNA to protein), and general bioinformatics.
