Dr James Noble is a Senior Scientist and Delivery Manager for measurement services and contract research work for the Biometrology group.
James received a BSc degree in Medical Biochemistry and an MSc degree in Toxicology from the University of Birmingham, UK. He obtained his PhD in Chemical Biology from the Imperial College London for research on enzymatic fluorescent biosensors for cellular screening applications. This work was in collaboration with Novartis and the University College London.
His current research focuses on the development of synthetic virus-like structures as functional reference materials and their application in biomedicine and synthetic biology. James has published various high impact papers in JACS, Nature Commun and ACS SynBio, and won a Glazebrook Fellowship for a secondment to NIST. Earlier, he worked on diagnostic assay development and cTnI standardisation efforts in collaboration with the IFCC.
