Margaret is our Head of Science. Margaret spent 15 years conducting research at the University of East Anglia before working as a lecturer in microbiology and biotechnology. Her research introduced her to the idea that tiny amounts of polluting chemicals may have profound effects, not only on the wider environment but also human health. For example, sewage contains small amounts of natural and synthetic oestrogens that, when released into the environment, can have detrimental effects on aquatic animals. She believes that these powerful chemicals illustrate how important it is to think about the effects that products of industry might have on human health.
