Fiona Lethbridge

senior press officer, Science Media Centre

Fiona has worked as a press officer at the Science Media Centre for about six years; before that she did a PhD in science in Edinburgh.  The Science Media Centre aims to increase the accuracy of media reporting of science, health and environment stories by making sure journalists can get hold of top quality scientists, and by encouraging scientists to engage with the media when their area of expertise hits the headlines, especially on the messy and controversial topics like statins, antidepressants, e-cigarettes, alcohol, GM, fracking, the badger cull, and genome edited babies.
