Event Host

Dr Steve Cross is a geeky comedian and the founder of science comedy night Science Showoff.  He has a PhD in molecular biology, but for the sake of science and his sanity moved into a career in making science interesting, questioning and fun.  He's worked for Wellcome Collection, UCL the Science Museum and the Centre for Life and is an honorary fellow of the British Science Association.
You can hear him on the wild and weird Chaotic Adequate podcast and see him telling jokes all over the UK and Europe.
Steve is currently working with Nesta on FutureFest, a one-day festival of everything that is yet to come.

We are delighted to announce that Sunil Shah, CEO, o2h Ventures will be sharing an inspiring industry update on the night.  Sunil co-founded o2h Ventures which involves discovery services collaborations, seeding drug discovery, academic in-licensing and biotechnology incubation.
