"A Leader in Science", Professor Jane Clarke FRS in Conversation With Roger Mosey

Professor Jane Clarke FRS is a world-leading and award-winning scientist, recognized as a biophysical chemist for her multidisciplinary studies that have advanced the understanding of protein folding and misfolding. She is a fellow of the Royal Society, and a fellow of the American Biophysical Society. But her career defies the conventional pattern of academic leaders. She didn’t start her PhD until she was 40, and she spent several years teaching in comprehensive schools in London and elsewhere. She has since worked extensively on encouraging women to stay in science.

Now also President of Wolfson College Cambridge, Professor Clarke speaks with the Master of Selwyn College Cambridge, Roger Mosey, about leading in science – and defying expectations.
