New speaker for BSLS 2007

We are very glad to announce that Chris McCabe will be joining us to talk on Saturday. Chris is a research scientist, a geneticist and an author of several novels most recently Dirty Little Lies, under the name ‘John Macken’. He describes research he undertook for this novel in his recent Independent article ‘Hi-tech labs at the crime scene’.

Chris has lectured across the world for the British Council on connections between literature and science, and closer to home he spoke recently at the British Academy ‘Festival of Science’ at the University of East Anglia. A successful novelist Chris writes for the national press and has chaired panels at a range of conferences, including recently at the ICA in London.

All this and he's a working scientist and teacher too.
