This issue is packed full of articles bringing the work of inspiring researchers to your attention. The world of Health Science is diverse and fascinating and the research in this issue reflects that.
We have heard from Professor Robert Winston at Genesis Research Trust and Professor Neena Modi, President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, both leaders in the world of Child Health. We also have features on four scientists whose work is helping to ensure that our knowledge of this area continues to expand.
Elsewhere in the magazine, our view of Health Science remains as broad as ever, with articles featuring the work of researchers in Women’s Health, Novel Drug Development, Molecular Biology, Epidemiology and Neurology. Dr Nigel Scrutton, director of the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology, speaks to us about his institute’s ground-breaking research and their plans for the future, while Professor Alejandro Madrigal shares his insights as scientific director of Anthony Nolan, the world’s first bone marrow and stem cell donor register.
It was a pleasure to create this issue and I am sure you’ll enjoy reading it. So get stuck in and join our worldwide readership (including people in research stations in Antarctica!) – with many in the science community unsure what Trump’s success will mean for the sector, now may be a good time to remind ourselves of the valuable work that researchers in North America and beyond undertake every day.
