Julian was at Trinity as an undergrad, PhD student (with the now Sir Shankar Balasubramanian) and then Research Fellow, working on understanding unusual structures of DNA and how they affect gene expression. He juggled his scientific research with political engagement, serving as the youngest elected Councillor (and Leader of the Opposition) on Cambridgeshire County Council, and then as the Member of Parliament for Cambridge. He now runs an interdisciplinary centre at Jesus College, Cambridge, as well as working in the NHS. He also holds numerous other roles across the public and private sectors.
In this interactive talk he will discuss his research and political careers, and speculate on the potential future for Cambridge and the UK.
