King Henry II St Portsmouth, United Kingdom E-mail Nationality: BritishEMBL information Staff Scientist Marvin Group Structural and Computational Biology From 1979 to 1983 Research interests: Molecular Biophysics; protein-DNA interactions; X-ray crystallography; small-angle scattering Biography Hide biographyBiography: Geoff graduated in 1972 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Biophysics from the University of Leeds. He stayed in the Astbury dept. of Biophysics to do his PhD on X-ray crystallographic analysis of biological molecules, which he was awarded in 1975.
He took up his first post-doctoral post in the Biophysics Laboratories of what was then Portsmouth Polytechnic, where he stayed from 1975 to 1979. In this time, his research was the on structure of chromatin, principally using the technique of neutron scattering, which involved frequent visits to the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble.
This was followed by postdoctoral positions at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg (1979-1983), where he carried out studies of viral DNA binding proteins using a wide range of biochemical and biophysical techniques. Geoff subsequently moved to the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge (1983-1985) where he carried out research on the structure of oligonucleotide duplexes, especially those containing base pair mismatches, using the technique of X-ray crystallography.
In 1985, Geoff returned to Portsmouth as a Senior Lecturer, and was subsequently promoted to Principal Lecturer. In 1990, he was one of the first in the country to be awarded a prestigious Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowship by the Royal Society. In 1992, he was made a Reader and in 1994, was appointed to a Chair in Biomolecular Science. Since 1999, he has been Director of the Institute of Biomedical and Biomolecular Sciences, and in 2002 was also appointed as Associate Dean (Research) in the Science Faculty.
