Thomas Cleveland
Physicist at National Institute of Standards and Technology, Biomolecular Measurement Division


Dr. Thomas Cleveland is a physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR). Thomas received his Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine before coming to the NIST Center for Neutron Research in 2014 as a National Research Council postdoctoral fellow. He initially performed small-angle neutron and X-ray scattering studies of membrane protein/lipid systems, including the lipidic cubic phase and nanolipoprotein particles. In 2018, he transitioned to the NIST Biomolecular Measurement Division, where he continues to study protein and lipid assemblies using cryogenic electron microscopy and scattering methods.
