Summary

Professor Boyle was promoted to Professor of Biological Chemistry in 2011 after joining the University as Reader in Biological Chemistry in 2000. He studied for his PhD in organic photochemistry, under the supervision of George Truscott, at Paisley College, Scotland, where he gained his BSc in Chemistry in 1986. In 1990, he moved to Canada to carry out postdoctoral research, first at the MRC Group in Radiation Sciences, Universite de Sherbrooke, Quebec, and then at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. He returned to the UK to take up a post as lecturer of biological chemistry, at the University of Essex, in 1996.
