Dr Derek Nolan
Head of School of Biochemistry and Immunology
I have worked on African trypanosomes, which cause human sleeping sickness, for twenty years. As a PhD student I investigated the bioenergetics of T. brucei in Paul Voorheis' laboratory at Trinity College Dublin. Subsequently, I moved to Brussels in 1992, as an EMBO fellow, to join the group of Etienne Pays to study the expression and function of surface proteins in trypanosomes.
