    Adrian Goldman教授1980年于英国剑桥大学取得学士学位,1985年于美国耶鲁大学取得博士学位,现任英国利兹大学生物医药系正教授、首席科学家,并兼任芬兰赫尔辛基大学生物技术研究所所长。他的研究方向主要包括分子生物学以及细胞生物学,通过交叉学科途径来描述大分子细胞表面系统的复合物的表达、折叠和三维结构。其实验室利用分子生物学、生物化学、X射线晶体学和其他生物物理手段在细胞表面标记和折叠复合物,这些复合物在细菌-宿主相互作用及神经系统发育过程中发挥重要作用。他在分子生物学领域取得了令人瞩目的成就,迄今已在Science、PNAS等国际顶尖学术刊物发表论文130余篇,获得了许多国际性学术奖项。

    Dr. Adrian Goldman is Leadership Chair and a Professor in the School of Biomedical Sciences, Leeds University, UK, and Research Director of the Institute of Biotechnology, University of Helsinki, Finland. He obtained his PhD in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University, USA in 1985. His research interests are investigating the structure-function-biology relationship in cell-surface and integral-membrane protein systems. He uses multidisciplinary approaches, including molecular biology, biochemistry, X-ray crystallography and other biophysical techniques, to study signaling and folding complexes at the cell surface, both in bacterial-host interactions and in the development of the nervous system. He has published more than 130 articles in top journals, including Science, PNAS and EMBO J, and has been awarded many international prizes for his outstanding research contributions.
