The cracking bunch of scientists in the team

Dr Tim Allison

I am the research group leader and moved to the School of Physical and Chemical Sciences at the University of Canterbury in late 2017. Prior to this I was the Senior Team Leader in the laboratory of Professor Dame Carol Robinson at the University of Oxford. I completed my BSc(Hons) (1st class) (2007) and PhD in Biochemistry (2012) in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Canterbury, where I was part of Professor Emily Parker's laboratory (now at Ferrier Research Institute, Victoria University of Wellington).

At the University of Canterbury I am also an Associate Investigator in the Biomolecular Interaction Centre and the Events Publicity/Coordinator for the Canterbury branch of the New Zealand Institute of Chemistry. I am also an Associate Investigator at the Maurice Wilkins Centre for Molecular Biodiscovery.
