Frederic Vellieux

Chateaubriand Research Fellow

Larry came to work with me on a Chateaubriand fellowship he secured from the Science Department at the French Embassy in Washington DC (Y2K). He wanted to crystallise and solve the 3D structure of IL-7 but that did not work out. So we worked together on the structure determination of the pyruvate phosphate dikinase from T. brucei, and on the halophilic malate dehydrogenase from Haloarcula marismortui. Good team person to work with, and we managed to publish 3 papers regarding his work here that lasted for 12 months. Very productive indeed.
