Description

She’s a developmental biologist whose lectures reach the level of performance. Dr Alison Woollard is the fifth female Scientist ever to be part of the Royal Institution's Christmas Lectures. Michelle Martin finds out why work-life balance almost held her back from taking on the Lectures and what the nematode worm (and developmental biology) can tell us about aging well. The show also gives listeners a preview of Dr Woollard’s lecture which headlines the Science Festival’s Star Lecture series to be broadcast on Channel 5 on 14/9/14, Sun, 5.30pm – 7pm.
