Jo is currently Assistant Director for the School of Biological Sciences, at the Research Operations Office. Prior to this she was Departmental Administrator at the Department of Pharmacology and has been a Tutor at Wolfson since 2009. She arrived at Wolfson via an unplanned and unconventional route. After completing a PhD in Neuroscience at UCL, she embarked on a career as a research scientist. Three wonderful postdocs, a husband at medical school and two children later, she opted for a job with a little more security and joined the Medical Research Council as a Scientific Programme Manager. She spent seven varied and stimulating years with responsibility for as diverse areas of science as structural biology, nanotechnology and bacteriology. She arrived in Cambridge in October 2008 and joined Wolfson College as a Tutor in October 2009.
