  • Academia (Virology, Human Genetics, Molecular Biology)
  • 13 years in the Biotech and Pharmaceutical sector


  • Has written 2 popular science books: "The Epigenetic Revolution" and "Junk DNA"

As always, check out the events page and our Facebook page for more information.
Talks are 2 for non-members and free for members. Lifetime membership is 15. Have a look at our membership page for more details.

Also we have our AGM for this year on Wednesday 6th May at 7pm at the Plant Sciences Department (Large Lecture Theatre), during which we will also hold elections for the new committee of 2015-16. This is your opportunity to get involved with the running of one of the largest student science societies in Cambridge, to meet and network with top scientists, and also a great opportunity for you to strengthen your CV with leadership skills.

If you are interested in applying for a position (see committee page/email for positions available), please write a short manifesto introducing yourself and describing your motivations for applying, and send it to by 3rd May. Please also prepare a short presentation (2-3 minutes) to introduce yourself at the AGM.
