Jon is a researcher and chief scientist at SGC (Structural Genomics Consortium) in UNICAMP, an International collaborative Open Science Project funded by PITE FAPESP-SGC-UNICAMP. The SGC is an international consortium with laboratories in five countries whose mission is to accelerate research in new areas of biology, focussing on areas of the human genome that are less well studied. In recent years, Jon?s research has centred on protein kinases and other families of proteins involved in cellular signalling. He has experience in the areas of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Structural Biology, and his research determines protein structures and develops chemical inhibitors of those proteins. These inhibitors can be used to investigate the function of the proteins in cells. He has more than 12 years? experience working in SGC at the University of Oxford (UK). He has a degree and PhD in chemistry from the University of Oxford (1998 and 2002). He did post-doctoral research in the group of Prof. Christopher J. Schofield working to understand proteins involved in hypoxic regulation and antibiotic biosynthesis. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Many of the discoveries from the rapidly expanding genomic sciences are not effectively utilized in medicine, agriculture and industry. This is partly because of the disconnection between scientists in different disciplines, and because much of the translational research done in both industry and academia is patent-protected and not published in a timely manner. This INCT proposal addre...
