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.


Florence’s work on counter-current chromatography has been published in Angewandte Chemie. Her paper describes how this technique, using liquids for both the stationary and mobile phases, can benefit reactions. Read more here.

Adura’s new paper examines the previously poorly studied effect of ligand-ligand electrostatic interactions in catalysis.

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.
