Laurence Pearl FRS is Professor of Structural Biology in the Genome Damage and Stability Centre and heads the School of Life Sciences at the University of Sussex. His laboratory studies the structural biology of DNA repair, signal transduction (the process by which a cell converts one kind of signal or stimulus into another) and molecular ‘chaperones’. Professor Pearl’s seminal contributions to scientists’ understanding of the recognition and repair of DNA damage and the function of molecular chaperones was recognised in 2008 with his election as a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS). He is also a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences and an elected member of the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO). In 2011 he was the recipient of an Inaugral Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award.
