Iain is the charity's first Director of Research, responsible for overseeing the development and implementation of our ambitious new research strategy. He joins us from Diabetes UK where he held the post of Research Director for five years, during which time he took forward its funding of high quality, internationally acclaimed studies and almost doubled the organisation's research spend.
Previously Iain worked in research management at the Wellcome Trust and before that as a parasitologist and researcher exploring various aspects of molecular biology of a number of different parasites.
Iain is a keen baker and also enjoys making jams, chutney and other preserves. He also loves spending time walking his three dogs.
