A brief career history ...
... of a native Manucunian now living in South-East England.
Born in the Year of the Snake.
After education as a Foundation Scholar at The Manchester Grammar School, I read Biochemistry at Worcester College, Oxford and studied for a PhD with the late Dr. Margaret Fox at the Paterson Laboratories, now Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute.

My career in cancer research at the Gray Cancer Institute (formerly the Gray Laboratory) at Mount Vernon Hospital covered a variety of interests including redox-active compounds as radiation-modifiers, bioreductive probes for hypoxia in mammalian cells, factors influencing the response of tumours to therapy, and in the prediction of this response, multi-photon imaging of tumours and tissues.

Other Interests . . .
include dabbling in electronics, an extensive website, growing numerous succulent plants in an east-facing conservatory in south-east England and searching for and photographing cacti and other succulent plants in their habitats. The collection includes a selection of small-growing North American cacti - species that I have been fortunate to find and photograph in the deserts of the south-west USA and a few that I would have liked to find. Most of the collection consists of the "other succulents" including Euphorbias, Asclepiads and caudiciforms.

As growing space indoors is limited, a small collection of frost-hardy succulent plants are kept outside throughout the year. New species are tried each winter - a few survive. The collection also includes a selection of Cactus Kitsch including pin badges, keyrings, pottery and glassware in the shape of, or depicting cacti or other succulent plants.
