Welcome to the Robinson Research Group webpages.

Our laboratories are located in the Chemistry Department at the University of Oxford and our research is focussed on understanding protein interactions in the gas phase.

To carry out this research we have adapted mass spectrometry instrumentation and methods to transfer protein complexes with as little perturbation as possible as they transition from solution to the gas phase. 

We focussed first on soluble proteins and more recently on membrane embedded assemblies trying to recreate their native environments as closely as possible.
