Scientist Q & As
The stereotypical image of a scientist is an old, bespectacled man with messy, white hair and lab coat, slaving away in his ivory tower totally disconnected from the outside world. In reality, it can be quite different. To provide insight into scientists working on SMA in Europe, what they do and why, we will be conducting mini “interviews” with some leading SMA researchers.
For our latest Q & A we have Laurent Servais, a clinical researcher recently appointed Professor of Paediatric Neuromuscular Diseases at the MDUK Oxford Neuromuscular Centre.
To start 2017, we have a Q and A with Melissa Bowerman, a postdoctoral fellow working on SMA at the University of Oxford.
Our first 2016 Q and A is with Rafael J. Yáñez-Muñoz who runs the AGCTlab at Royal Holloway, University of London
Next up, we have newly appointed Wellcome Trust fellow Ewout Groen.
First to go in 2015, we have newly appointed group leader Lyndsay Murray.
For our third instalment, we have Tom Wishart, who has recently started his own research group.
Next, we have Francesco Tiziano of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Rome, Italy.
First up in 2014, we have Francesco Muntoni of University College London.
For our final Q&A of 2013, we have Simon Parson of the University of Aberdeen.
We now interview Lucia Tabares from the University of Seville, Spain.
