Brian Sutton is Professor of Molecular Biophysics at King’s College London. He studied chemistry at Oxford University and then trained in X-ray crystallography for his doctorate, investigating the structures of biological macromolecules such as antibodies. He held a Royal Society University Research Fellowship in Oxford before moving to King’s. His research uses X-ray crystallography to determine the structures of antibodies involved in allergic diseases, in particular asthma, in order to develop new therapeutic agents. He is based at the Guy’s Hospital Campus in the Randall Centre for Cell & Molecular Biophysics, which traces its history back to the MRC Biophysics Research Unit in which Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins worked on DNA under its first Director, John Randall.
