Company: University of Bristol

Job title: Professor - Biological Chemistry


Paul Race is Professor of Biological Chemistry in the School of Biochemistry, University of Bristol (UoB). He is a founding Director of the Bristol BioDesign Institute (BBI) and is Bristol lead for the EPSRC funded UK Innovation and Knowledge Centre (IKC) in synthetic biology (SynbiCITE). From 2014-2018 PRR served as Co-Director of the >£14M BBSRC/EPSRC funded Bristol Centre for Synthetic Biology Research (BrisSynBio). He vacated this role in early 2018 to lead the >£2.7M EPSRC funded ‘Manufacturing Immortality’ project, which aims to develop bio-hybrid living materials. Race’s research focuses on the exploitation and manipulation of enzyme complexes, pathways and networks, en route to the development of new bioactive molecules, drug leads and biocatalysts. This activity is underpinned by fundamental studies of natural systems performed using an inherently multi-disciplinary approach.
