Marta Westwood has obtained his PhD in Nano-materials from Cranfield University in 2007. In 2011, he has joined Structural Biology group led by Alaistair Lawson at UCB. For the past five years, he has been developing expertise in small molecule drug discovery using a fragment based approach. He has also been involved in the assay development for a novel antibody-enable drug discovery approach. Prior to joining UCB, he was awarded a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Institute of Food Research in Norwich to study the mono and multilayer films used to encapsulate active ingredients for a controlled and site-specific delivery within the GIT. During his time at IFR he has worked on numerous projects including a commercial project for Pfizer focused on AFM imaging of proteins and polysaccharides constituting vaccines.
