Dr Michael Mosely, science presenter, writer and executive producer, will present a Great Lives Lecture on Monday 11th December.

Dr Michael Mosely is a science presenter, writer and executive producer. He is the writer and the presenter of BBC2’s The Story of Science, and is also the face of science and medicine on The One Show. Michael’s programmes on exercise (The Truth About Exercise) and diet (Eat, Fast & Live Longer – which led to the hugely popular 5:2 diet) have produced much popular and media discussion as he examined the benefits of short, high-intensity exercise and fasting for two days a week.

Dr Mosely originally trained as a doctor at the Royal Free in London, and then decided to change course become a science journalist. He worked behind the scenes on programmes such as Newsnight at the BBC before becoming a presenter.

His Great Lives talk at the University of Lincoln coincides with Dr Michael Mosely being an honoured guest of the university and officially opening the Sarah Swift Building which is home to the School of Health and Social Care and School of Psychology. Dr Michael visits the University of Lincoln for the first time and will talk about his career in an informative conversational way where the audience will hear a very personal and inspiring account of a career in science and the media.
