Professor Alice Roberts
IBRB Lecture Theatre

Professor Alice Roberts is an academic, writer and broadcaster and is interested in the structure of humans, how we function, and our place in the wider environment.

Professor Roberts is fascinated by human biology and history - and although these are often considered to be separate subjects, they are intertwined and inseparable.

Professor Roberts originally trained as a doctor, but left surgery behind to become a university academic - teaching clinical anatomy to students and doctors, and researching human origins and disease in ancient bones. From very early in they’re academic career, they became involved in university outreach. Universities are knowledge generators, and we should share that knowledge widely - but listening and learning from others’ experience and expertise is also vitally important. In this way, we can make sure that knowledge benefits everyone - whether that’s sharing the latest medical advances or enriching our culture in other ways.

Professor Roberts has been Professor of Public Engagement with Science at the University of Birmingham since 2012.
