with Dr Helen Czerski, Prof Lucie Green,Dr Suzi Gage & Dr Linda Cremonesi

But what about that long running research that’s taking place in background. Not in any sinister way, it’s just happily taking small steps and quietly changing the world, it just never gets a bold, all caps ‘A-HA’ headline moment. Helen Czerski, Lucie Green, Suzi Gage and Linda Cremonesi, find out more about some of the most exciting, under-reported science happening in the world today.
