Welcome to the Howorka group at University College London. We are excited about membrane nanopores and study, for example, protein pores of pathogenic bacteria to understand their role as gateway for transport across lipid bilayers. In addition, new synthetic pores composed of DNA are engineered to achieve unprecedented molecular control for applications in biosensing, targeted cell killing, and synthetic biology. We also enjoy developing new nucleic acids probes and linker chemistries to enable new discoveries in biological research.
