Combining QCM-D and neutron reflectometry to develop tuneable membrane biomimetics


Doctor Luke Clifton is from the Rutherford Hamilton laboratory at the STFC in Oxford.

Luke completed his PhD in biophysical chemistry at the University of Redding in 2008 and he joined the ISIS Paul Smutron and LeonSource at Rutherford, Appleton, laboratory that year.

He was initially employed to support user sample development in the facility's biology trees, but later became an instrument scientist in the neutron refit geometry group.

In these roles, Luke has developed multiple novel biomembrane sample systems and uses these to answer applied questions of membrane biology. This research has provided impactful findings in diverse areas such as antimicrobial resistance, cancer, food, security, and biomembrane, hemopneumostasis.

He has published over seventy research articles including a series of review articles and book chapters on the application of neutron scattering techniques to the biological sciences.
