Johan Hill

Trainee Patent Attorney

Johan studied Biochemistry at the University of Warwick for his undergraduate degree, during which he achieved the top mark in his year and also spent an industrial placement year at the pharmaceuticals company, Novartis. Following this, Johan was accepted for a Wellcome Trust-funded D.Phil at the University of Oxford, where his project focussed on the study of host cell processes that viruses hijack in order to replicate. Johan used a number structural and biophysical techniques to study his target proteins and eventually used CRISPR to reveal the effects of different gene knock-outs on the replication of dengue and Zika viruses.
