Sarah Teichmann is interested in global principles of protein interactions and gene expression. In particular, her research focuses on structural bioinformatics and biophysics of protein complexes, and genome biology to study genetic switches in T cells. Sarah did her PhD at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK and was a Beit Memorial Fellow at University College London. She started a group at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in 2001. In 2013, she moved to the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Hinxton/Cambridge, where her group is joint between the EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute and the Sanger Institute. Sarah is an EMBO member and fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, and her work has been recognized by a number of prizes, including the Lister Prize, Biochemical Society Colworth Medal, Royal Society Crick Lecture and EMBO Gold Medal.
