Can you tell me a bit about what you have been doing since you left KSB?I studied at Imperial College (BSc ARCS - 1988) and Cambridge (PhD 1992), wprking in the field of proteins and co/enzymes. I then moved to San Diego in 1992, working on viral vectors, in gene trapping. This was a difficult time to work as there was much scientific plagiarism in the USA. In 1995 I moved back to London to work on cell receptors and adhesion proteins, in London 1995 – 2000, with Birkbeck College and National Institute for Medical research (MRC NIMR).
What couldn’t you have owned up to at school that you can now!I went to a Prep School, in Camden Town, NW London which was a State Comprehensive/Catholic School, for two years (11 to 13 years age). I rather kept this quiet whilst at King's.
Which was the best house and did you have a favourite teacher?Difficult question - Blackford House did very well in sports, etc.
Best life lesson that you learnt at KSB?
What advice would you give to current pupils?
