Originally qualifying as an RGN in 1991, he has worked in clinical research since 1999.  In this seminar Steve will discuss the challenges of doing research and talk about his experiences with the Ebola research and how that impacted not only on himself but the team around him, including those based in the UK. We will hear about how he got involved, his thoughts on how prepared the research community is to react to such outbreaks and how he was treated when he returned to the UK.
