Akane Kawamura's Biography

Akane Kawamura, Research Fellow, University Of Oxford

Akane Kawamura is a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow and a University Research Lecturer, based in the Departments of Chemistry and Radcliffe Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford. After her undergraduate degree in Chemistry, she received her D.Phil in Pharmacology, working with Prof. Edith Sim on the biochemical and biophysical investigations on Phase II drug metabolizing enzymes. She spent three years in industry as a senior researcher, where she led a number of drug discovery projects across a wide range of therapeutic areas. In 2009 she returned to academia to work with Prof. Chris Schofield FRS at the University of Oxford on chemical biology of epigenetic regulation. She was awarded a BHF CRE Fellowship in 2012 and a Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship in 2013. Her group’s research focuses on the biochemical / cellular studies of histone demethylases, the development of chemical probes against epigenetic protein targets, and the development of peptide-based target validation approaches.
