LMB is sad to announce the death of Fred Sanger at the age of 95
Fred Sanger, double Nobel Laureate and founding member of the LMB in 1962, died on Tuesday 19 November, at the age of 95. He was an extremely modest and self-effacing man whose contributions have made an extraordinary impact on molecular biology. More…
The LMB is responsible for many pioneering techniques, such as methods for determining the three-dimensional structures of proteins and other macromolecules, the sequencing of DNA and the development of monoclonal antibodies.
Our scientists tackle difficult, long-term research problems. At the same time they are encouraged to exploit their discoveries – through patents, licensing and business start-ups – helping to advance medical research and improve the UK’s economic competitiveness.
Research led by Professor Nick Brindle at the University of Leicester and Julian Sale from the LMB’s PNAC Division has resulted in the production of a molecule that has great therapeutic potential in the treatment of inflammatory conditions. Much of the work took place while Nick was on sabbatical at the LMB and involved additional […]
New research from Philipp Holliger’s group in the LMB’s PNAC Division demonstrates the power RNA could have wielded to enable the first forms of life on Earth to reproduce and thrive. At its most basic level, all life can be viewed as a mechanism for self-replication: organisms reproduce by making new copies of themselves and […]
