Staff Profile

Dr Vincent Rao

Research Associate


Dr Vincent Rao is a Research Associate in the Institute for Cell & Molecular Biosciences at Newcastle University.

Area of expertise

  • Structural Biology



Currently, my research focuses on characterising essential cell division proteins in bacteria using X-ray crystallography and other biophysical techniques. By characterising these proteins and the complexes they form, we hope to identify new drug targets for drug discovery and overcome antibiotic resistance that is becoming prevalent in bacteria.
