Ceri Durham

Ceri Durham is a former Volunteer Writer at BioNews, having originally joined the publication under the auspices of its writing scheme, and is currently studying for an LLM in Medical Law at Queen Mary University of London. Having previously worked as a solicitor doing commercial and private client work for so-called 'ultra-high-net worth individuals', she is moving towards a new career path based (somehow) on her studies, her passion for campaigning for improvements in maternity services, and supporting women with choices in chidlbirth. She is particularly interested in learning more about how scientific writings can be made more accessible to a lay audience.
