Professor Lord Robert Winston belongs to that rare breed of scientists who combine academic brilliance with charisma and a flair for communication. His TV appearances have made him a household name. His BBC TV series include Child of Our Time, Making Babies, The Secret Life of Twins, Superhuman, Your Life in Their Hands,
Human Instinct, and the Human Body, which won three BAFTAs.
Robert Winston’s enthusiasm for communicating science has seen him riding rollercoasters, standing naked in igloos, drinking himself into a stupor, and putting his own sperm under the microscope. A winner of the Royal Society’s prestigious Michael Faraday Gold Award, he was made a life peer in 1995. In 2005, Robert won the Aventis Junior Prize for Science Books for his best-selling DK book, What Makes Me Me. His follow up book, It’s Elementary, also made it onto the shortlist for the Aventis Junior Prize for Science Books.
