Stephen Fuller (1953-2014)

stephenfuller

We are sad to report the death on 25th August of Professor Stephen Fuller. Steve was a pioneer in experimental and computational methods in cryo-electron microscopy and 3D reconstruction which he applied to virus structure, particularly icosahedral reconstruction of Semliki Forest Virus. He later worked on retroviral structure and assembly extending to mechanisms of immune response to infection. Steve was a major driving force for the highly successful and continuing programme of EMBO courses on cryo EM and a key advocate for establishing the electron microscopy databank (EMDB). Overall his enormous generosity and enthusiasm for training and helping people to use cellular and molecular electron microscopy have made a major contribution to the development of the whole field of structural biology.
