Dr. Martin’s background is within the life sciences. He graduated in 1984 with first class honours in biochemistry/physiology and subsequently gained a doctorate from Manchester University in 1992 for his research to help better understand how the roof of the mouth develops in mammals. Dr. Martin can be seen wearing a Tudor bonnet during his doctoral graduation ceremony (below). A similar one makes an appearance in the Dr. Martin logo.
Dr. Martin worked for 10 years as a postdoctoral scientist in medical genetics making specialised resources (cells) from patients with chromosome abnormalities to assist mapping of human genes. He has a continuing personal interest in the life sciences, particularly in relation to the origin of life and the origin of complex life on Earth.
In 2003, Dr. Martin began a seven year period working for an Education Business Partnership during which time he developed, administered and delivered an extensive portfolio of events and activities to promote STEM to young people.
