A cursory glance through recent issues of the leading science journals that are found lying on your average university coffee table (Nature, Science, PNAS) will be enough to convince you that UCL Life Sciences are thriving. With alumni as illustrious as the molecular biologist Francis Crick and evolutionary theorist John Maynard Smith, this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. But now UCL is also leading the way with so-called ‘translational’ research – medical science that seamlessly strides into the public domain, with the potential to directly impact on people’s lives. Think penicillin, anti-depressants and polio vaccinations, and you’re on the right lines.
