Professor Mark Sansom selected as Novartis Chemistry Lecturer

Mark Sansom

Professor Mark Sansom

Professor Mark Sansom has been selected as one of the prestigious Novartis Chemistry Lecturers for 2012-13 - the only UK speaker amongst a selection of six international scientists.

The lectures, awarded each year by Novartis, recognise outstanding contributions to organic and computational chemistry, including applications to biology. Professor Sansom’s award recognises the work of his research group on computational studies to aid our understanding of membrane proteins, in systems ranging from ion channels and solute transporters to complex membrane signalling and recognition systems.

Professor Sansom commented: ‘It is rather nice this award has come to someone working in Biochemistry, recognising the Department's role in using advanced methods from the chemical and physical sciences to understand complex biomedical systems. Thus we play a key role in translating new methodologies into genuine advances in biomedical sciences.’

He has been invited to give talks at various Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research and will speak at Emeryville (California), Cambridge (Boston), Basel (Switzerland), & Horsham (UK) (
