Dr Ian Gould is a reader in the Chemical Biology section. His main interests are in the development and application of computer simulation methods to probe the relationship between structure and function in biological systems. He is one of the lead authors of the AMBER 95 force field and is continuing to develop both the force field and combined quantum mechanical/molecular mechanical methods to study reactivity in enzymatic systems. He is actively involved in the postgraduate schools in Biomolecular Science and Chemical Biology, both of which run under the umbrella of the Institute of Chemical Biology and is a member of the governing board. His college responsibilities include being a member of the IC-Atlantic committee and chairing the users group for High Performance Computing. He is a member of the ACS, RSC and MGMS.
