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 and EMBO.


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.

04 October 2017 Wes Robertson started his post doc in the Chin lab on 4th October, he did his PhD at Yale University.

01 October 2017 We welcome our new PhD students to the Chin lab, Daniel Dunkelmann from ETH Zurich and Louise Funke from the Technical University of Munich. If you want more information on doing a PhD at the MRC click here
