And the winner is… (part 2)

As many readers of the Journal of Left-Handed Biochemist will know, I was shortlisted for the UK Bioscience Tutor of the Year in 2012. Due to ill health I was unable to complete the second phase of the application that year and the organisers generously rolled over my application to 2013. In the end I was runner up in the competition, with Prof Tim Birkhead FRS from Sheffield being the winner.

Part of the application required the production of a video (mine is here). I thought it would be fun to let you in on one of the “tricks of the trade”. With all the Richard III excitement at Leicester in the Spring, I only had limited access to video support. Carl Vivian, with whom I’ve worked regularly on a variety of project including the Model Organisms in Biomedical Research and the Power of Comparative Genomics films, was operating the camera. So who was I talking to so earnestly in the interview? Carl’s erstwhile colleague Mr Monkey.
