Welcome to the Robinson Group

Our team comprises researchers with diverse backgrounds: from chemists and physicists to structural biologists and engineers, we all work towards the common goal of deciphering protein structure and function in the gas phase.



Carol is delighted to extend her congratulations to Francesco Fiorentino who recently passed his viva.


New Paper Publication

Congratulations to Dr Joe Gault and Dr Idlir Liko on the publication of their Nativeomics paper which can be read here and found on Nature.com.  Also an interview with Carol Robinson.

Othmer Gold Medal
Carol was honoured to be the recipient of the 2020 Othmer Gold Medal. The award ceremony is currently scheduled for May this year.

to Jingwen Li who successfully defended her DPhil thesis on 12th February.
