Dr David Drew

David Drew is a current EMBO Young Investigator and holds a Wallenberg Academy Fellowship at the Centre for Biomembrane Research at the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Stockholm University. He received a Ph.D. in biophysics and biochemistry from Stockholm University in 2005, and thereafter carried out an EMBO postdoctoral fellowship in the area of X-ray Crystallography under Prof. So Iwata at Imperial College London. From 2009 Dr. Drew started as a University Royal Society Fellow at Imperial College London. From 2012 he obtained his current position at Stockholm University. Dr. Drew aims to understand how solute carrier (SLC) transporters function at the atomic level, as their dysfunction is associated with human diseases, such as cancer and cardiovascular heart disease. These goals are facilitated by the development of novel methods in membrane protein overexpression, purification and crystallization.
