Professor Andrew Munro (BSc, PhD) - research
My research is in the area of Molecular Enzymology - i.e. the characterization of structure, function and mechanism of enzymes with important biological and/or biotechnological roles. I have particular interest in the analysis of cofactor-binding proteins; particularly flavoproteins and the heme-binding cytochrome P450 enzymes. I am a member of the Molecules to Cells (M2C) section of the Faculty of Life Sciences, and my research group is based in the new Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre (MIB): A Research Institute at the interface between Biology and the Chemical/Physical sciences. My major research areas of interest are detailed below, and research is sponsored by a variety of agencies including the BBSRC, EU, MRC, Industry and Leverhulme Trust.
