Crystallography at Birkbeck College

Birkbeck College has an outstanding tradition of pioneering work in adult education, and strong links with the socialist movement. Unlike most colleges of London University, many of its real-life students are part-time, many balancing precariously between the desire to study and the need to earn a living.

The Crystallography Department - with which I am proud to be associated - has a world-class reputation in protein structure both experimenetally and theoretically. The college has committed support to the development of distance education and last year funded Sami Raza to develop resources, including much of the material under the home page. Sami has now moved on to Leicester University, and his place has been taken by Alan Mills.
