Our Team:

The Yue lab is part of the Newcastle Structural Biology Laboratory of the Newcastle University Biosciences Institute. Our work falls into the cross-cutting themes of Molecular Mechanisms of Life and Discovery of Medicines of the Faculty of Medical Sciences.

Our Mission:

We explore how genetic defects lead to rare metabolic diseases at the protein level, using biochemistry, structural biology and chemical biology. 

We programme our basic research to align with priorities from ‘front-line’ clinicians, drug developers and patient groups. 

We envision small molecule therapeutics with novel modes of action that target loss of function and protein-protein interactions.
