Prof Cait E MacPhee

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. She is able to advise on protein aggregation to form gels and particulate aggregates, the self-assembly of polypeptides 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 aggregates. She has prior experience of working with food-related products and pharmaceutical formulations.
