Andrew J Turberfield is a Professor of Physics at the University of Oxford. Turberfield leads the DNA Nanostructures Group that is pioneering techniques of self-assembly based on biomolecular recognition in order to engineer functional nanostructures. The ability of complementary sequences of DNA to recognize and bind to each other are exploited to create complex and programmable architectures, including periodic and aperiodic arrays, and discrete structures such as polyhedra that may be used to encapsulate functional molecules such as proteins. These structures can move: Prof Turberfield's group is developing synthetic molecular motors powered by DNA hybridization and DNA hydrolysis.
