Trinity Hall Milestone Lecture 2016

Twists and turns: how proteins fold and how I came to my research career

By Professor Jane Clarke, Fellow in Natural Sciences


The failure of proteins to fold correctly is at the heart of many diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. Professor Clarke describes some fundamental investigations into how proteins fold and avoid misfolding. She also explains how she came, almost by accident, to her research career, the obstacles she encountered and why she is passionate that girls and young women should have every opportunity to have a career in science.
