January 2022 podcast with Nigel Brown
2022 marks the 60th anniversary of the Royal College of Pathologists. In our first Diamond Jubilee podcast episodes, host Natasha Cutmore speaks with Nigel Brown, Consultant Clinical Scientist in Analytical Toxicology and deputy examiner in Clinical Chemistry for the IBMS. Nigel leads a small regional toxicology service in the North East of England. His interests are drug metabolism, mass spectrometry and alcohol markers. Outside the lab he sings in a choral society, plays the church organ (reasonably well) and cycles to and from work. His children are both now at university, so he and his wife are learning how to talk to each other again!
