Sarah Teichmann is Research Group Leader at EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute and has made major contributions to biology over the past 15 years. A fundamental discovery was her work to define key biophysical mechanisms in protein complex assembly, showing that protein complexes assemble via distinct, ordered pathways. She showed that these assembly pathways are conserved in evolution and how they may be predicted from 3D structure. Her databases and computational analysis methods have had a broad and deep impact on the community. She represents a new breed of scientists at the interface between computational and experimental molecular biology.
