Professor Richard Neutze

Richard Neutze took his PhD in Physics in 1995 from the University of Canterbury (New Zealand). He was introduced to the field of molecular biophysics at Oxford University (England); completed a postdoc at Tübingen University (Germany); and then moved to Uppsala University (Sweden). In 1998 Neutze became Assistant Professor at Uppsala University. He moved his group to Chalmers University of Technology in 2000.  In 2006 Neutze was appointed Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Gothenburg. Neutze has worked on the structural biology of aquaporins; bacterial rhodopsins; photosynthetic reaction centres; time-resolved diffraction and time-resolved wide angle X-ray scattering studies of membrane proteins. He is recognized as one of the pioneers developing new approaches to structural biology using x-ray free electron laser radiation.
