Education: The University of Bristol.
Science has given us everything from the Atom Bomb to antibiotics, from aerosol to the Internet, creating knowledge and tools that have hampered progress as much as they have facilitated it. This video explores what it means to be a scientist in the 21st century, based on a series of interviews with researchers who are working on some of the fundamental, complex issues in science – from theoretical chemistry to geology, from psychology to planetary formation.
The video is part of a series of films made for Faculty of Science, designed to inspire prospective students by showing that the University of Bristol is a place of challenging, broad and provocative thinking.

It also included interviews with some of the patients, whose lives have been saved.
