Current interests

Emiliana de Santis
  • Peptide design and synthesis
  • Peptide folding and self-assembly
  • Biophysical characterisation of biomolecules


After receiving her Master's degree in chemistry and pharmaceutical technology (La Sapienza, Rome), Emiliana de Santis moved to the UK where she completed her PhD in Chemistry from the University of Kent, studying the folding and metal binding ability of novel peptidomimetics. Emiliana pursued her interest in folding of biomolecules during postdoctoral studies at Diamond Light Source before joining NPL in 2013. Her current research focuses on applying protein design and biophysics to further the understanding of biomolecular self-assembly and its quantitative measurement.
