Profile of Professor Alessio Ciulli

Alessio Ciulli holds the Personal Chair of Chemical Structural Biology at the School of Life Sciences, University of Dundee. He is also the Director of the newly announced Dundee’s Centre for Targeted Protein Degradation (CeTPD). Dr Ciulli’s laboratory has made important contributions to selective chemical intervention on protein-protein interactions targets and to the development of proteolysis-targeting chimeric molecules (PROTACs) as a viable strategy for targeted protein degradation. Amongst his most significant discoveries are the fragment-based design of ligands for the E3 ligase von Hippel-Lindau (VHL), and their use to design one of the first VHL-based PROTACs: the BET degrader MZ1. Dr Ciulli’s Lab later illuminated fundamental insights into PROTACs’ mechanism of action, solving the first crystal structure of a PROTAC ternary complex. Dr. Ciulli is the scientific founder of Amphista therapeutics, a company that develops new protein degradation platforms. Before joining Dundee, Dr Ciulli was a group leader at the University of Cambridge, where he previously earned his PhD degree and carried out postdoctoral research. Amongst his honours are the EFMC Prize for Young Medicinal Chemist in Academia, the ICBS young chemical biologist award, the RSC Capps Green Zomaya Award in medicinal computational chemistry, and election as Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
