Professor Deane is a Professor in the Department of Statistics at Oxford. She leads the Oxford Protein Informatics group, a research group of over 20 people working on diverse problems across protein structure, immunoinformatics, biological network and small molecule drug discovery. Her research covers several areas in protein structure prediction and protein interaction networks, combining both theoretical work and empirical analyses. The group works on developing novel methodologies to understand and predict protein evolution, interaction, structure and function.
Professor Deane commented, “I am absolutely delighted to receive this honour. I was very fortunate to be part of an amazing team across UKRI that worked above and beyond to ensure that the UK’s amazing research community, both academic and industrial, was able to bring its collective power to bear across all of the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, from economic and cultural to social and medical.”
