This appointment recognises Weston's contributions to the field of Chemical Biology and Infectious Disease, which aligns with research themes in the Department of Biochemistry. Additionally, Weston’s background in mass spectrometry and mass photometry adds strength to structural and biophysical research, principally in understanding mechanisms of host-virus interactions and glycoprotein structure.


In his new capacity, Weston will play an active role in educating and mentoring students pursuing the 4-year Masters-level degree course in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry. His appointment as a Tutorial Fellow at Worcester College underscores his dedication to academic excellence.


When asked about his new role, Weston stated: 

"I’m delighted to be joining the Departmentof Biochemistry, a department which not only has a strong commitment to teaching next-generation scientists but a rich history in my areas of research, notably glycobiology, infectious disease and structural biology." 


We congratulate Weston on this well-deserved appointment and look forward to witnessing his continued contributions to the Department of Biochemistry and the broader scientific community.
