Dr Daniel Allen Nissley

Florence Nightingale Bicentenary Research Fellow and Tutor in Bioinformatics

About Me

I am a chemist by training, completing my BSc at Lehigh University in 2013 and my Ph.D. at Penn State University in Ed O’Brien’s lab in 2019. I came to work with Charlotte Deane in the Oxford Protein Informatics Group (OPIG) as a postdoc in 2019 and began my current role as a Florence Nightingale Fellow in 2020. In 2021 I started working with Frank von Delft in the Oxford Center for Medicines Discovery, and in 2022 joined a project funded by Boehringer-Ingelheim.

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in using molecular modeling and simulation techniques to understand structure-function relationships in biological systems. While my Ph.D. research focused on co-translational protein folding and how the speed of protein synthesis can influence folding, since joining OPIG I have branched out into studies of antibodies, bispecifics, immunology, and protein engineering.
