Chemical biology is the application of chemical techniques to solve biological problems. In the Allemann laboratories we apply a range of chemical techniques to answer questions relating to the extraordinary catalytic power of enzymes and the control of biological processes.

We are always seeking bright and highly motivated students and postdocs to join our dynamic, multidisciplinary research group to work on any of our current projects. Informal enquiries are welcome. If you are interested in joining the Allemann Laboratories, click here for a list of vacancies.


Congratulations to Luke and Alice, their new paper detailing chemoenzymatic synthesis of methylated terpenes from 5- and 6-carbon building blocks has just been published in Angewandte Chemie.

We have many publications about using light as a tool, but Mohamed’s new paper is all about putting singlet oxygen to work in the dark.

Congratulations Ed! In his new paper in Biochemistry, he reveals the first X-ray structure of 5-deazaflavin bound to a protein and spectulates on what it might tell us about the mechanism of LOV domain activation.
