Yongwei Zhao

PhD Student

Monash University

Yongwei’s project focuses on the side chain cross linked ribosomal and nonribosomal peptide substrates which are mediated by cytochrome P450 enzymes. By understanding the mechanism underlying the recognition of P450s and ribosomal/nonribosomal substrates, Yongwei is working towards developing new peptidyl antibiotics utilising the catalytic activity of P450s. Outside of science, you can find him enjoying peaceful time with his cat Coco.
