Mavis Agbandje-McKenna received her Ph.D. in Biophysics at the University of London in 1989 under the direction of Prof. Stephen Neidle for work on the biophysical characterization of a novel group of DNA-intercalating anthraquinone anti-tumor agents. In 1989, she became a postdoctoral research assistant in the Department of Biological Sciences, Purdue University, Indiana, where she carried out research on structure to function correlation for the ssDNA Parvoviridae. In 1995, she joined the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Warwick, England, UK, as an independent research fellow, where her research on structure-function analysis of ssDNA viruses expanded to include the ssDNA Geminiviridae and Microviridae. Dr. Agbandje-McKenna joined the Faculty at the University of Florida in 1999. At the University of Florida her work on ssDNA viruses has expanded to include TT virus, the newly discovered member of the Circoviridae.
