Professor Hagan Bayley is Professor of Chemical Biology in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oxford. Hagan Bayley received his B.A. in Chemistry from the University of Oxford. He carried out his graduate work under the supervision of Professor Jeremy Knowles at Harvard University, receiving a Ph.D. in Chemistry. His postdoctoral training was with Professor Gobind Khorana at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He then went on to work at Columbia University, the Worcester Foundation and Texas A&M University. He joined University of Oxford as the Professor of Chemical Biology in September 2003 and is a fellow of Hertford College. Professor Bayley founded Oxford NanoLabs (now Oxford Nanopore) in 2005.

The talk is entitled “DNA SEQUENCING AND OTHER APPLICATIONS OF ENGINEERED PROTEIN NANOPORES ” and is set to be really exciting, exploring new methods of identifying molecules, including reading DNA on a USB stick.

Professor Bayley’s research interests lie in the exploration of membrane protein structure and function, and the use of molecular engineering techniques that transform these proteins into unique measurement systems for exploring the chemistry of individual molecules. Of particular interest are the analysis of DNA at the single molecule level, and the potential for ultra-fast gene sequencing using nanopores.

Free for all and there is a free drinks reception afterwards!
