Wolfson President, Professor Jane Clarke

Overview

Wolfson President, Professor Jane Clarke is a world-leading and award-winning scientist, recognised as a biophysical chemist for her multidisciplinary studies that have advanced the understanding of protein folding and misfolding. She is a fellow of the Royal Society, and a fellow of the American Biophysical Society. But her career defies the conventional pattern of academic leaders. She didn’t start her PhD until she was 40, and she spent several years teaching in comprehensive schools in London and elsewhere. She has since worked extensively on encouraging women to stay in science.

Professor Clarke will be in conversation with the Master of Selwyn Roger Mosey about leading in science – and defying expectations. 
Following the conversation Jane will be pleased to respond to your questions.
