Translational Sciences Seminar: Lung disease research - from bed to benchside and back again
|An Exeter Medical School seminar|
|Date||11 June 2014|
|Time||10:00 to 11:00|
|Place||Newman Purple LT|
Dr Chris Scotton, a Senior Lecturer in Lung Pathobiology and Principal Investigator in the Institute of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences, discusses his varied career in research, from a PhD in ovarian tumour biology, postdoctoral work on immunology (in Italy), through to leading a research group investigating the causes of lung disease.
Chris recently moved from London for the fresh air, green pastures and new challenges of working in Exeter. His current work incorporates basic and applied research, regenerative medicine, and translational research through links with the clinic and the pharmaceutical industry. He’d like to share some of his insights on the rewards and pitfalls of life as a research scientist in academia.
