Dr Shanshan Zhou
University of Warwick
Shanshan’s research focuses on the discovery and biosynthesis of nonribosomal peptide natural products from Streptomyces bacteria using a combination of chemical and biological methods. She is interested in their structure elucidation, bioactivity, mechanism of action and biosynthesis, and is exploring their potential to be developed into new antibiotics. Outside of Science, Shanshan enjoys reading and swimming.
