Professor Dame Sue Black
"If science is a genuine passion, it will never leave you and you will spend your life questioning and searching for truth - that is research. When that research translates into making a difference and solving real world problems, then surely there can be no better template for a purpose in life. The capability to change a small part of our world sits in the hands of every competent scientist but when all the scientists work together, then we can change the world."
Professor Dame Sue Black is one of the worlds foremost Forensic Anthropologists
