Celebrating the work of a neglected scientific pioneer

is spirits he simply gave up the pursuit of DNA, yet this seems to conflict with the image of a man for whom science was always an adventure and who was able to infect his co-workers with a similar excitement and enthusiasm.

"As his colleague and friend Professor Reginald D Preston once wrote: 'To be with Astbury is like a perpetual Christmas morning'."

Today, the University of Leeds' Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology stands as a fitting tribute to Professor Astbury and his work. The Centre was founded in 1999 as an interdisciplinary research centre and is today one of the University's powerhouses of research, aiming to understand life in molecular detail.

But in the words of Professor Preston, Astbury also left "as a monument the whole of molecular biology as a testament of what he had been striving for."
