Dr Andrew Shore
Having completed my undergraduate degree at the Wye Campus of Imperial College London I took up a research assistant post in the Comparative Medicine Section of Imperial which led onto a PhD in the same laboratory. With the continual evolution of research and university departments I left Imperial with a PhD and DIC from the National Heart and Lung Institute within the Faculty of Medicine.
This was followed by two years as a lecturing in Dorset on Bournemouth University degrees focussing on comparative anatomy, physiology, nutrition, genetics and epidemiology. While lecturing I completed my PGCertEP, became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and gained experience in the delivery of vocational qualifications and promoting widening access to Higher Education. With increasing lecturing commitments my research interests focussed on Bioscience Education, widening access to Higher Education and Bioinformatics.
I took up my current post at the School of Biosciences in 2009. Allied to my role as an admissions tutor I have also recently contributed to the Science and Learning Expert Group, developed science units for of level 3, 4 and 5 vocational qualifications (including HNDs) and advised City and Guilds on the progression of vocational learners to Higher Education.
