Dr. I an Kerr has had a long and very distinguished career studying the mechanism of action of the interferons.  Obtaining his Ph.D. in 1963, he did postdoctoral work at Stanford and MIT, and was a group leader at the MRC National Institute of Medical Research for many years before moving to Lincoln’s Inn Fields in 1980.

Dr. Kerr has made numerous ground-breaking contributions to our understanding of how interferons alter cellular behavior.  Dr. Kerr was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1985.  Dr. Kerr retired in 2005 as a senior group leader at Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London Research Institute.
