Trevor Creamer

University of Kentucky, USA


Trevor Creamer received the B.S. (with honors) degree in physical and inorganic chemistry and the Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from the University of Western Australia in 1985 and 1991, respectively. From late 1989 until 1995 he was a postdoctoral scholar training in computational biophysics under the tutelage of Professor George D. Rose. This training was undertaken at the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine in Hershey, the University of North Carolina, Washington University in St. Louis, and Johns Hopkins University. From 1995 to early 1997, Trevor was a Research Associate at Johns Hopkins University. From 1997 until the present, he has been a member of the faculty in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry at the University of Kentucky. Trevor is a founding member of the University of Kentucky Center for Structural Biology, and runs an NSF REU-funded undergraduate summer research program. He is a currently a member of the Biophysical Society Education Committee, 2006—2009, and is inaugural secretary/treasurer, 2007—2009, of the newly formed Intrinsically Disordered Proteins Subgroup of the Biophysical Society. Trevor's research involves using a combination of experimental and computational techniques to study the conformational properties of disordered regions within proteins. These studies include unfolded proteins and more recently intrinsically disordered proteins. He is author of more than thirty peer-reviewed papers and has published a number of book chapters. Trevor is editor of a book titled Unfolded proteins: from denatured to intrinsically disordered to be published in 2008.
