Dr Mark Pfuhl
- Biomedical and life sciences
Mark Pfuhl joined King's in October 2010 as a Reader in cardiovascular structural biology on a joint appointment with the School of Cardiovascular Medicine and Sciences and the School of Basic & Medical Biosciences.
Mark has a degree in Biochemistry from the Freie Universität Berlin and worked for his PhD at the EMBL Heidelberg. He was a postdoc at the Université de Haute Normandie in France and at University College London before he had his first academic post at the University of Leicester as Lecturer and Royal Society University Research Fellow.
Marks main background is in structural biology with a focus on Protein NMR spectroscopy in solution and the solid state. He is using this methodology to study the regulation of muscle contraction and kinase activity. More recently, he developed an interest in investigating the molecular base of how phosphorylation is used in these regulatory processes.
