Author Biography

Dennis Sherwood, Managing Director, The Silver Bullet Machine Manufacturing Company LTD,Paul Dalby, Professor of Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University College London

Dennis Sherwood is Managing Director of The Silver Bullet Machine Manufacturing Company Ltd. Dennis coauthored Crystals, X-rays and Proteins (Oxford University Press, 2010) and is the author of Introductory Chemical Thermodynamics (Longman, 1971). He earned his PhD in Biology at University of California at San Diego.

Paul Dalby is Professor of Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnology at University College London, and Co-Director of the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Emergent Macromolecular Therapies. Paul's research combines protein engineering and formulation, with biophysical characterisation, to understand the factors that influence protein stability. This informs protein engineering and formulation designs that can improve therapeutic protein manufacturing and delivery to patients. Paul earned his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Cambridge.
