Andrew Martin, D.Phil.Reader in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at University College London
Andrew Martin obtained his first degree in Biochemistry and D.Phil. from Oxford where he worked with Anthony Rees and developed the first automated program for modelling antibodies. He worked briefly at the National Institute for Medical Research before becoming self-employed, helping with commercialization of the antibody modelling software, and developing other scientific software. After a visiting post at the DKfz Heidelberg, he joined Janet Thornton's group at UCL before working at Inpharmatica, a UCL spinout, moving to Reading as a lecturer in 1999 and returning to UCL in 2004. His research focuses on the effects of mutations and on the analysis and modelling of antibodies developing tools for antibody bioinformatics.
