Core C3 Staff

Janet Newman: Janet is C3’s director, she put the initial infrastructure together in 2006 and has been developing it ever since. Janet’s research is focused on standardising the experimental approach to crystallisation/structure determination at a global level, as well as directing research for automated image analysis and novel tools to enhance crystallisation efficiency.  Janet has over 30 years experience in academic and commercial laboratories, developing automation technologies for protein crystallisation.
