Ivo Tews uses crystallography to study molecular interactions. Particular intrests are in large dynamic macromolecular complexes and time resolved techniques. As a member of the CCP4 project for crystallographic software he chairs working group 2, and is engaged in Synchrotron Science at the Diamond Light Source and the EUropean Synchtrotron Radiation Facilty.
