welcoming members from all backgrounds


Emeritus Professor and life fellow, University of Cambridge, UK

I'm Emeritus Professor of Neuroscience, University of Cambridge. My principal research interest is on the interaction between hormones and the brain, and I have focussed on reproductive behaviour, stress and the response to it, neurogenesis in the adult brain, and a clinical collaborative programme on depression, adolescents and adults. I have also published on the role of hormones in financial decision-making.

I have taught medical undergraduates for many years, and continue to do so, but my major teaching interest has been in graduate training. I set up the Cambridge graduate school and was its first chairman, I have run several large graduate programmes and one international (Marie Curie) programme in the EU, involving 12 institutions. I have sat on numerous committees concerned with graduate training and acted as an external PhD examiner many times in the UK and abroad.
