Fact File #4

Professor Sir Philip Cohen

Professor Sir Philip Cohen has been studying Protein Phosphorylation for 35 years, during which it has been recognised as one of the body's principal control mechanisms. Abnormalities in Protein Phosphorylation are a cause of cancer, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis and are now a major focus for the pharmaceutical industry. Professors Cohen's achievements in this field have led to a long-term multi million £ collaboration with a consortium of pharma partners and the MRC to speed up the development of specific inhibitors of kinases and phosphatases for their drug discovery programmes.
