Science and the Arts
graduated with First Class Honours in Biochemistry from the University of St.
Andrews and then spent the next year in the Sudan under the auspices of
Voluntary Service Overseas. He worked briefly for Oxfam before accepting a place
to read for a D.Phil in Neuroendocrinology at Oxford and on getting his D.Phil
became a Lecturer in Biochemistry at the University of Kent.
1988, he was awarded a Media Fellowship and worked as a reserve medical
correspondent on TODAY newspaper. The experience inspired him to initiate a
series of activities designed to increase public awareness of science and also
led to his appointment as Editor of The Biochemist. In 1996, he moved to Bristol
to take up a Principal Lectureship in Science Communication at the University of
the West of England. He now directs Graphic Science, an operation which uses
varied means to take science to the public. Its lead activity over the last two
years has been Science on the Buses, which began in Cardiff with funding through
a Millennium Award and has since run in eight major cities in the UK. The
campaign is now running in every capital city of the European Union, during
European Science and Technology Week, 2002.
