Cait MacPhee

Scientific Advisor and Professor of Biological Physics

Cait is Professor of Biological Physics at the University of Edinburgh. Her expertise is in the use of experimental and computational methods to understand mechanisms of self-assembly of peptides and proteins and to interrogate microbial biofilm structure and function. She is able to advise on protein aggregation to form gels and particulate aggregates, the self-assembly of polypeptides and proteins at interfaces, analytical methods to assess the degree of polypeptide aggregation in formulations, methods to prevent or promote polypeptide aggregation, and methods to modulate the physical properties of formulations. She has prior experience of working with food-related products and pharmaceutical formulations.
