Introduction
I teach across two disciplines, in law and in science in a UK university. My current teaching involves pharmacy law and regulation, media law & environmental and science journalism, alongside of which I teach in pharmacogenomics & molecular genetics, in particular regarding adverse drug reactions caused by genetic phenotypes. I previously taught in biomedical science and clinical microbiology on neurodegenerative disorders and research methodology following research into spongiform encephalopathies and iatrogenic transmission of disease. I am a researcher in medical law, in particular concerning psychiatry and psychiatric medication. I am a member of the European Group for Legal Expertise working on a European Union wide expert witness programme.
