Beamline Scientist

Sam is a structural biologist working on method development around structural biology at Diamond Light Source, in particular for ways of better understanding how enzymes function through the production of structural movies. Sam is working through deposited structures related to SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 with a view to providing the most accurate protein structures possible for future drug design efforts. Sam is a keen scientific communicator, having participated in a number of science slams and public lectures on the healing power of crystals (drug design through crystallography), and is now live streaming his work on corona virus structures on Twitch.
