The boss makes his choice

The latest contributor to My Favourite Scientist is an interesting one.

It's Professor Neil Gorman (pictured), the Vice-Chancellor of Nottingham Trent University (NTU).

For those who don't know, the Vice-Chancellor is the uni's top boss.

In Professor Gorman's case, his background is in veterinary science - so it was little surprise that he chose a veterinary scientist for this video.

His choice was William "Bill" Jarrett - not only a great scientist, but someone Professor Gorman knows personally.

To clarify, NTU is one of two universities in Nottingham.

The other is The University of Nottingham (UoN).

Many of my projects, such as periodicvideos and Sixty Symbols, are collaborations with UoN.

But My Favourite Scientist is a project with NTU.
