Name: Dr. Adrian Fowkes

Job Title: Senior Scientist

Hi, my name is Adrian and I am a senior scientist at Lhasa.

My background is in organic chemistry and its interface with biology, which I became interested in during my undergraduate studies. I pursued these interests by undertaking a PhD and a postdoc in chemical biology. The main focus of my research was the synthesis of selective inhibitors for various protein targets including membrane bound transporters and protein-protein interactions. During this time I was also interested in applying techniques that can speed up the drug discovery process.  This led to me undertaking projects in cellular biology to develop new high-throughput assays and computer-aided drug design to discover new active scaffolds.

I joined Lhasa in December 2013, where I have been able to continue applying my scientific interests and skills to challenges in toxicology. My main work relates to developing knowledge for expert-based prediction systems. I enjoy the collaborative atmosphere at Lhasa which provides a great environment for conducting research. Lhasa also allows for a great degree of personal development. I have gained an understanding of predictive systems and developed new skills in data harvesting, processing and visualisation.

Outside of work I enjoy playing football, cycling and brewing beer.
