Matthew Crump

Professor of NMR and Structural Biology
University of Bristol

I lecture and run a research group at the University of Bristol. This involves teaching and engaging with undergraduate students in all aspects of their studies as well as cutting edge research in my lab. The research involves mentoring postgraduate students, writing up our results as papers for publication and travelling to present results at conferences around the world.

Lecturer in Pharmacology

I run a research group studying blood vessels and how white immune cells are captured from the blood. We also look at how fats in the blood cause new blood vessels to grow. We are also looking at how bacteria stick to heart valves and how we can use new drugs to work as antibiotics.
