This video was produced by the European Patent Office (EPO) and provides an accessible introduction to our work on engineering protein synthesis to reprogram the genetic code.

Jason’s 2009 Francis Crick Prize Lecture at The Royal Society in London provides a more detailed introduction to our research interests and motivations.

Work in our lab is supported by the MRC, the ERC, HFSP, EMBO and the Louis Jeantet Foundation.


In this interview for the European Molecular Biology Organization Jason, discusses some of our recent work and future directions.

Jason’s EMBO Gold Medal Review from 2011 and Perspective in Science magazine from 2012 provide good introductions to our scientific interests.

August 26 2014 Technology developed by Satpal Virdee (former postdoc) and Jason Chin for making ubiquitinated proteins is licensed by Boston Biochem. See the full story here.
