The scientific progress of X-ray methods has been remarkable, thanks to technological developments. If Dorothy Hodgkin had had access to one of today's X-ray facilities when she was researching insulin, the experiments that took her 34 years could have been done in just one hour. Prof Stuart takes us on a journey of the latest structural biology achieved, from the biological structure of HIV integrase, communicable diseases, through to his latest work on the Asia Pacific hand to mouth virus!
