The research of Giles Yeo

I am late coming to the party about the metabolic genetics researcher, Giles Yeo. Dr Yeo is the Principal Investigator in the Department of Clinical Biochemistry, in the Wellcome-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science at Cambridge.

Damn, but I wish this man had been my lecturer on any paper in my undergraduate degree as he is a hoot. He has a wonderful knack of translating very complex processes into logical, digestible and understandable bites that we can absorb, and fit into the larger picture.

So this article is a short piece simply to link to two of Dr Yeo's lectures (The Royal Institute, 2018, 2021). These are both firmly recommend viewing, in date order, as follows.

I hope you enjoyed those as much as I did.
