Meet our TEAM
Christophe Corre

Dr. Christophe Corre

Associate professor

Initially trained as a Biochemist Biochemistry / Molecular Biologist (University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis, France), I moved to the United Kingdom in 2000 to start working on antibiotic biosynthesis in Streptomyces bacteria for which I was awarded a PhD in Chemistry (University of Exeter, UK) in 2004.

Since then, I have worked at the University of Warwick first as a postdoctoral researcher, then as a Royal Society University Research Fellow, and now as an Associate Prof. in Synthetic Biology; jointly appointed between the School of Life Sciences and the Department of Chemistry.

Our research group works at the interface of biology and chemistry. We are particularly interested in transcriptional regulators, bioactive natural products and biocatalysts in bacteria. Micro-organisms are the most creative chemists and we cannot work without them...
