Robert McKenna received his Ph.D. in Crystallography at the University of London in 1989 under the direction of Prof. Stephen Neidle for work on structural studies of nucleic acid targeted anti-cancer drug design. In 1989, he became a postdoctoral research assistant in the Department of Biological Sciences, Purdue University, Indiana, where he carried out research on structure-function analysis of virus capsids. In 1995, he joined the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Warwick, England, UK, as a Warwick Research Fellow (WRF), and set up an independent X-ray crystallography group where he researched on structure-function analysis of ssDNA viruses to include the ssDNA Parvoviruses Geminiviridae and Microviridae. Dr. McKenna joined the Faculty at the University of Florida in 1999 where his research is on structure-function studies on proteins and enzymes.
