Professor Alistair Warren
Alistair has wide experience in the basic sciences that underpin medicine. As well as teaching, examining and researching in Biomedical Sciences he has led many curriculum developments in the area. He joins the University of Nottingham as Professor of Anatomical Sciences and Vice Dean, Early Years & BMedSci course at the Lincoln Medical School.
After completing his BSc (hons) in Biological Sciences, Alistair undertook a PhD and post-doctoral fellowship in Developmental Neurobiology. He became Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in Anatomy and Cell Biology, then Professor in Biomedical Science at the University of Sheffield. His laboratory research focused on quantitative morphometric analyses, at light and electron microscopic levels, and he has worked on a range of topics including male and female infertility. He has supervised many postgraduate students at PhD, MD and MSc levels.
At Sheffield Alistair held a number of leadership positions including Faculty Director of Learning and Teaching in Science, member of the Faculty Executive Board, and Chair of the University Quality and Scrutiny Committee, amongst others. He led Phase 1 (then the first two years) of the MBChB course and set-up a successful MSc in Science Communication. He taught medical, dental and science students and is a Fellow of the Anatomical Society. He was voted 'Best personal tutor' across the university and won the 'Student Voice Advocate' award.
