What are you working on right now?
I am the PI of Translating Illness, an interdisciplinary research project exploring the interplay at work between translation and medicine. Translating Illness has a research as well as a public engagement focus. It consists of a programme of international collaborations; a seminar series which is also available in the form of podcast episodes; and a series of video conversations which consider the role of translation in the context of the current global health crisis (Translating COVID-19). The project has been awarded a double research grant from Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund and John Fell Fund, Oxford.
