    Personal profile


    Dr. Hoor Ayub is a research scientist within the Centre for Sports, Health and Life Sciences. She joined Coventry University in July 2019 as a postdoctoral researcher, working on membrane protein pharmacology and molecular biology. Hoor's current research is on understanding the structure, function and underlying molecular mechanism of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) in the presence of receptor activity modifying proteins (RAMPs).  Hoor's work is  funded by BBSRC- industrial partnership award with Prof Mark Wheatley and in collaboration with Aston University, University of Birmingham and UCB biopharmaceutical company.

    Hoor completed her PhD in membrane protein biology and biotechnology from Aston University and in collaboration with Janssen, UK. Her PhD work gave rise to data on (i) stabilisation and purification of difficult to study membrane proteins in SMA co-polymers; (ii) novel biochemical, functional and structural data on tetraspanin family of membrane proteins; (iii) large-scale membrane protein production for X-ray crystallisation and cryo-electron microscopy studies.
