Most important lesson To ignore the opinions of so-called thought leaders and do my own thing.

Encounters with serendipity Too many times to call – I find the whole of life a continuous series of stochastic events.

Most unexpected outcome Ending up running one of the largest clinical departments in the world - for the last six years.

Eye on the horizon The fields of metabolic phenotyping (using NMR and MS) are growing rapidly – for diagnostics, prognostics, and real-time analysis, population phenotyping and patient journey monitoring. Such efforts will be powered by large-scale phenotyping centers, such as our MRC-NIHR National Phenome Centre at Imperial and the international phenome center network that we are building. Pretty much all of modern biology and medicine (including genomics) are powered by analytical science one way or another – as is environmental science. The world’s biggest challenges include climate change, multiple antibiotic resistance and understanding the role of the microbiome in human health and disease. The importance of analytical scientists will continue to increase as we increase our efforts to face these exciting and serious challenges.
