The Louise Johnson Fellowship includes a Fellowship for up to two years for a female postdoctoral research associate performing research in one of CUI’s Louise Johnson research groups.
The renowned professor of Molecular Biophysics and pioneer of protein crystallography, Louise Johnson (University of Oxford), had an international role in advising on the exploitation of synchrotron radiation for biological research. She was fascinated by CUI’s interdisciplinary research program and joined CUI to support us as an international collaborator. Before she could do so, Professor Dame Louise Johnson passed away in September 2012.
