An inaugural public lecture by John McGeehan, Professor of Structural Biology, University of Portsmouth
We have come a long way since the discovery of the DNA double helix, and now have huge X-ray microscopes such as the Diamond Light Source that can reveal the 3D structures of nature’s molecules of life. In this inaugural lecture, Professor McGeehan will discuss how shining X-rays at tiny crystals can inform global challenges from disease to sustainable energy.
