I am looking to get a GFS 500Gb for use in my PhD studies but I will likely be keeping personal data on there. Is there any scope to encrypt the drive but still allow it to be used with my iPad2 and MBP (Lion)?

If you were to do full disc encryption, the embedded NAS server inside the drive would not be able to access the media.
You could either create an encrypted partition, or an encrypted file system container within the main partition, and store your confidential information there.
I recommend taking a close look at Truecrypt, and thinking about how you can apply it to your situation.
