Hi I'm Lucy. Thanks for taking the time to learn a bit more about the person behind 'ResearcherLucy'.
By day I'm a full-time Scientific Content Producer for an international Journal and by night I'm the founder, host, and producer of a 'The Science Podcast' as well as a science communicator over here on researcherlucy.co.uk

My family has always encouraged, often difficult but open scientific discussion about our views. "Lucy, have you heard about stem cells?” “What do you about animal testing?” “Lucy, have you seen they can do this in the lab now?”
Science has always been a point of fascination for me.
For that, I thank my grandfather. Sharing the scientific discoveries and curious facts in a way that I, as an eager 11-year old, could understand. As I grew up, my fascination grew deeper. I started to be the one asking the questions, if my grandfather had heard of the genome project or monoclonal antibodies? Had he seen that scientists have been able to help a quadriplegic move his fingers with a help of a chip in his brain?
I studied Biomedical Science at university and went on to become a Biomedical Scientist in an NHS laboratory, and missing out on the steps in between, I now work as a Scientific Content Producer at an international journal. Its such a privilege to be a science communicator for work and play! Let me tell you, when I landed my current job I cried tears of joy - I often pinch myself just to make sure I'm not dreaming!
By night I am the founder, host and producer of 'The Science Podcast', a podcast that aims to help you discover your love for science and learn something along the way. You can find a direct link to 'The Science Podcast' spotify page above.
Science communication runs through my veins as strong as my blood, so if you have a story you think I should write about on here or cover on my podcast, let's connect!
