Elected in 2011

Short citation at year of election

Trevor has established an outstanding career in bioinorganic chemistry, crystallography and molecular mechanics research. His crystallographic research has been coupled with molecular mechanics and other calculations to bring about new insights into the understanding of how metal-ligand bond lengths and ligand conformations modulate chemical and physical properties of coordination complexes. Multidisciplinary research on metal anti-cancer drugs has traversed chemical, biochemical and cell biological studies in order to both design new drugs with greater efficacy and understand the activities of existing drugs. His pioneering bioinorganic chemistry research has led to his election as President of the Society for Biological Inorganic Chemistry.
