Sheena Radford is Professor of Structural Molecular Biology at the University of Leeds. Her achievements have involved the innovative application of biophysical techniques to protein folding problems. Her early work in Oxford on hen lysozyme was the foundation for current views that proteins fold on complex multidimensional landscapes, commonly known as folding funnels. She has extended her research to encompass misfolding and disease and has also developed new physical methods to study ultrafast processes. Sheena's work on dialysis-dependent amyloidosis has shown that protein unfolding of 2-macroglobulin is a key step in fibril formation.
