Dr Allen’s technical expertise includes a wide range of biochemical, biophysical and genetic approaches, including bacterial and eukaryotic genetics and molecular biology; protein chemistry; protein purification; enzymology; enzyme kinetics (rapid reaction and steady state); absorption and other spectroscopies; protein-protein interaction methods; electrochemistry and bioinformatics.

Dr Dean Rea, BSc, PhD

Dean_ReaDr Dean Rea obtained a BSc in Biochemistry from the University of East Anglia. This included an intercalated year conducting synthetic organic chemistry research within the Medicinal Chemistry Department at GlaxoSmithKline, followed by a PhD in Structural Biology within the School of Life Sciences at the University of Warwick. His PhD focused on structure-function relationships in peptidase enzymes, and primarily involved protein crystallography, enzymology, and molecular biology. He has since studied the structure and function of peptidases, plant circadian clock proteins, microbial aromatic degradation enzymes, carotenoid dioxygenases, and microbial transcriptional repressors, during an ongoing research career spanning over 12 years. Dean has co-authored numerous research papers, many as first author, and now applies his broad knowledge of the Life Sciences to scientific editing and proofreading.
