Cameron Neylon (STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory) is a biophysicist, an internationally recognised advocate of open practices in research and a developer and critic of web based tools for supporting research. After undergraduate studies in metabolic biochemistry he pursued a PhD in molecular biology and protein biophysics, at the Research School of Chemistry ANU, before continuing work as a molecular biologist within the Chemistry Department at Bath. In 2001 he took up the position of Lecturer in Combinatorial Chemistry at the University of Southampton and in 2005 he commenced a joint appointment (80%) as Senior Scientist in Biomolecular Sciences at the ISIS Pulsed Neutron and Muon Facility. Dr Neylon has extensive experience of managing and coordinating multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary projects on a range of scales.

Through involvement in the developement of web based electronic laboratory recording systems Dr Neylon has become a well known advocate and speaker on the subject of web based tools in research, and an advocate of Open Access publication and Open Science more generally. His research group is working towards making the entirety of their research record available online, as it is recorded. He has given four invited talks at international meetings in the area in the past twelve months.
