Dr. Gileadi obtained his BSc and Ph.D. at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, investigating gene expression in the human placenta. His post-doc at Stanford University focused on the RNA polymerase-associated factor TFIIH from yeast. After establishing his own group at the Weizmann Institute in Israel, he continued to investigate the genetics and biochemistry of gene regulation in yeast. Since 2004 Opher has been in the Structural Genomics Consortium in the University of Oxford, where he initially led the Biotechnology group and, since 2010, the Genome Integrity group. The group has specialised in the structural and chemical biology of DNA repair proteins. In 2015-16, Opher has moved to Brazil for 1.5 years to direct the establishment of the SGC lab at the University of Campinas, which focuses on open science and the chemical biology of protein kinases of humans and plants. Back in Oxford, the group effort is continuing the work on DNA repair proteins, while also expanding to include proteins involved in neurodegenerative diseases.

The CCP4 2020 workshop supports the International Union of Pure and Applied Physicists (IUPAP) Policy on Free Circulation of Scientists and the IUPAP policy statement on harassment at conferences.
Free Circulation of Scientists: The principle of the Universality of Science is fundamental to scientific progress. This principle embodies freedom of movement, association, expression and communication for scientists, as well as equitable access to data, information and research materials. In pursuing its objectives with respect to the rights and responsibilities of scientists, the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) actively upholds this principle, and, in so doing, opposes any discrimination on the basis of such factors as ethnic origin, religion, citizenship, language, political stance, gender, or age. IUPAP should only sponsor conferences and events at institutions and in countries that uphold this principle. If scientists are excluded from attending IUPAP-sponsored international conferences by a host institution or country on the basis of any of these factors, IUPAP should register its concern at the highest level of that institution or country, and should not sponsor any future events in that country until such exclusions have been eliminated. [ Section 1. (http://iupap.org/sponsored-conferences/conference-policies/)]
Harrassment at Conferences: It is the policy of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) that all participants in Union, and Union-endorsed activities will enjoy an environment which encourages the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas, and is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. The conference organisers will name an advisor who will consult with those who have suffered from harassment and who will suggest ways of redressing their problems, and an advisor who will counsel those accused of harassment. The conference organisers may, after due consideration, take such action they deem appropriate, including warning or expulsion from the conference without refund.

The International Union of Crystallography strives to achieve gender balance in all its institutions and activities bearing in mind other diversity needs and its existing obligations to geographic and academic discipline representation where appropriate. To achieve this aim the IUCr will adopt procedures to promote gender balance in respect of all of its activities including selection of candidates for positions on its Committees and Commissions. Those seeking support from the Union for Congresses, meetings, workshops and schools will also have to demonstrate their efforts to address gender balance.
