  • Dr. Azadeh Fattahi-Savadjani of Durham University describes herself as an astrophysicist trying to understand how the 'faintest' galaxies form in the Universe, in order to gain understanding about the nature of Dark Matter and test the standard model of cosmology.  
  • Johanna Weston of Newcastle University is currently researching the role of scavenging amphipods in the ecology of the deepest oceans.
  • Dr. Laura Greaves of Newcastle University is a senior research associate investigating the role of mitochondrial DNA mutations in ageing stem cells and cancer.
