Dr Claudia Barros
"My work investigates how neural stem cells could be used to treat conditions like dementia or brain cancer, and for me the most important aspect of a career in science is to be passionate about it - I am always inspired when scientists talk enthusiastically about their work."
Lecturer in Neuroscience
Dr Louise Belfield
"Coming into a scientific career from a non-traditional background can be challenging. It might not be obvious where you’re going at the start, but don't be put off if your route isn't clear; follow your curiosity and let it carve your path. It might just be that your non-traditional background is exactly what makes you stand out."

"It seems to me that the very best chance we have of developing people who will shape the future and their own destiny is for us to accept that learning (especially in health care) is a social process involving not just knowledge, but an understanding of others feelings, beliefs and preferences."

Dr Mona Nasser
"My research involves a critical evaluation of how research is prioritised, conducted and implemented and, to understand the best ways with which to identify and address current gaps in knowledge. I am very lucky to work with a diverse group of scientists from different countries, men and women with different life experiences. These diversities are crucial to ensure a constructive discussions in science on how we can find better ways to conduct research."
