Thomas Christott


DPhil Clinical Medicine

Originally from Germany, and already with several years of industry experience in Oxford under my belt, I transitioned back to academia in 2015. Since then, I have been working as a Research Assistant in the biophysics and screening group of the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), specialising in high throughput screening for the development of small molecule inhibitors of various disease associated proteins as freely available open source tool compounds for the scientific community.

I chose Green Templeton College because of the college’s culture and values, including its active promotion of human wellbeing and international development, which complement the SGC’s approach to completely open-source science. I hope my time at GTC will lead to new friendships, connections, and scientific collaborations within the college’s interesting and dynamic community.

When not doing science, I can be found playing bass as 25% of the Alternative Facts.
