Harriet Groom


I am the Stanley Elmore Research Fellow in Biological Sciences (College Associate Professor) at Sidney Sussex College where I am Director of Studies for Biological Natural Sciences and a Postgraduate Tutor. I also teach the first year undergraduate course Biology of Cells. Previously I was a Henslow Research Fellow at Downing College, funded by the Cambridge Philosophical Society. I am an associate Principal Investigator in the Department of Medicine at the University of Cambridge where I work on a number of projects with some lovely people. I am based in the Cambridge Institute for Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Disease within the Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre (more here).

I am hosted in Nick Matheson’s lab with whom I work on our HIV-1 accessory protein, Vpr, project. I also work with Dr Julia Kenyon on SARS-CoV-2 RNA structures in collaboration with Tsinghua University and other groups in Cambridge.
