Prof. Trevor Forsyth


Integrative Structural Biology Core Group Member, External LINXS Fellow

I was appointed to a personal Chair in Biophysics in 2004. Prior to that I was a Lecturer and then Senior Lecturer in Physics at Keele. Since 2000 I have been on secondment to the Partnership for Structural Biology at the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, France, where I hold a Senior Fellowship and am Head of the Life Sciences Group.

Add To Cart

The main research interests of my group concern the study of macromolecular systems using physical techniques. Neutron and X-ray scattering techniques at the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL) and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) are central to this. Current project work includes structural studies of DNA, DNA-drug interactions and DNA-protein complexes, self assembling systems of synthetic and biological origin.

We are also deeply involved in methodological developments for neutron and X-ray scattering. The Integrated Macromolecular Structure Research Group is based at the Partnership for Structural Biology (PSB) in Grenoble, France, where a wide variety of techniques are available to complement the capabilities of the Grenoble central facility infrastructures.
