“For me science isn’t a subject, it’s a perspective…”

“Quentin Cooper hosts BBC Radio 4’s weekly The Material World, the UK’s most listened to science programme, as well writing and presenting a range of other science output on radio, television and in print. He also facilitates and directs a huge range of other science events in the UK and round the world – in the last year these include everything from science journalism workshops in Azerbaijan to a biodiversity conference in Brazil, from the first European Commission forum on science communication in Spain to the training and finals in Munich for Europe-wide science talent contest FameLab. He is an advisor and trustee to several leading UK science organisations including the Wellcome Trust, Newcastle’s Life Centre and Cheltenham Science Festival and is one of the judges for the new £25,000 Wellcome Trust Book Prize for medicine in literature launched in October 2008. The same month he joined scientists plus Oscar-, Grammy-, Emmy-, Pulitzer- and other global arts prize-winners on the Cape Farewell climate change expedition to the west coast of Greenland.
