Natural Product Reports welcomes new Editorial Board member Roger Linington

Natural Product Reports is delighted to welcome Professor Roger Linington to the Editorial Board.

About Roger

Professor Linington received his undergraduate degree in chemistry from the University of Leeds and his Ph.D. in natural products chemistry from the University of British Columbia in Canada. He started his independent academic career at the University of California Santa Cruz before moving back to Canada in 2015. He is currently a Professor of Chemistry at Simon Fraser University where he holds a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Natural Products and High-Throughput Screening. 

His research program focuses on developing new tools in 1) chemical characterization of complex mixtures, 2) phenotypic fingerprinting of bioactive metabolites and 3) creation of informatics platforms to integrate chemical and biological datasets. Professor Linington’s research program integrates wet lab science in small molecule characterization with informatics tool development through the creation of open-source databases, webservers and informatics pipelines for small molecule discovery and characterization.

He has interests in both the practical aspects of small molecule identification and the technical aspects of developing new computational methods in this area. This includes separation science, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, database design, and algorithm development. His team maintains the Natural Products Atlas (, a database of all known microbial metabolites.
