Ken Dutton-Regester

Melanoma Researcher | Science Communicator | Advocate for Early Career Researchers

I have a keen interest in science communication and the professional advancement of early career researchers. As scientists, we have a duty to inform the public of where our publicly funded research dollars are being spent and more importantly, relay the importance of investing in research. On the other hand, supporting the future generation of scientists will continue to ensure ground-breaking discoveries while simultaneously supporting the national economy through innovation. On a personal note, I am keen runner and cyclist (and have been trying my hand at triathlon but my swimming leg is horrid) and have been enjoying being a new dad with our first son, Ty!
