SONIA CONTERA
Physics
I am a biological physicist. I am interested in the  physics of water at biological interfaces and in the role of cell mechanics in cryopreservation.
My research focusses on quantitative imaging and mechanical measurements of biological systems with atomic force microscopy; multi-scale mechanics in biological function and mechanically active biomaterials

Consultant Paediatric Oncologist
Programme Director and Clinical Lead for the Future Fertility Trust Service.  Senior Lecturer in Paediatrics at the University of Oxford.
TOM PIZZARI
Zoology

I am interested in the evolutionary ecology of sexual behaviour, and most of my work focuses on resolving different aspects of sexual selection and intersexual coevolution, using the fowl, Gallus gallus, as a model species which enables me to use a combination of experimental work, and physiological and molecular tools.

Philosophy, Institute Future of Humanity

Research centres on societal and ethical issues surrounding human enhancement, estimating the capabilities and underlying science of future technologies, and systemic risks of risk modelling. Topics of particular interest include enhancement of cognition, cognitive biases, technology-enabled collective intelligence, neuroethics and public policy.

MRC Harwell
I have responsibility for the MRC’s embryo bank at the Harwell Institute. This facility specialises in the cryopreservation of embryos and sperm harvested from novel mouse mutants, many of which represent models of human disease. These valuable research tools are made available to the scientific community through the
European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA).
