PhDs in Jackson Group: 50 n.o.

Prof Jackson's visit from Dr Tony WoodProfessor Richard Jackson recently had a visit from Dr Tony Wood (right), who completed his PhD with Richard in 1990, in Newcastle. Tony has had a very successful career with the international pharmaceutical company, Pfizer, where he is now Senior Vice President and Head of Worldwide Medicinal Chemistry, based in the US. This visit provided an opportunity for Richard's latest PhD graduate, Martyn Chilton (left) to get some valuable insight into the workings of the pharmaceutical industry from someone who really knows. Martyn is the 50th successful PhD student supervised by Richard; every student who has started a PhD with Richard has successfully completed their PhD - 50 not out!
