Welcome to the BioMolecular Dynamics consortium website

The BioMolecular Dynamics (BMD) consortium is a multidisciplinary, collaborative group dedicated to developing a concerted approach to studying the relationship between structure, function and dynamics in biological systems. The team is made up of the following research groups:

University of Strathclyde:

Neil Hunt (Dept of Physics) – ultrafast 2D-IR spectroscopy and related techniques

Nick Tucker (Strathclyde Institute for Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences) – Biochemistry and spectroscopy of bacterial systems.

Paul Hoskisson (Strathclyde Institute for Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences) – Bacterial Microbiology

Research Complex at Harwell; STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory:

Tony Parker – Time resolved infrared and Raman spectroscopy

Mike Towrie – Ultrafast spectroscopy and molecular dynamics

Diamond Light Source:

Martin Walsh – X-ray crystallography for macromolecular crystallography applications

University of Nottingham:

Jonathan Hirst – Theoretical simulations of biomolecular structure and dynamics.

Nick Besley – Theoretical approaches to protein spectroscopy
