Joanna Mack

Joanna Mack is an Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the School of Policy Studies at the University of Bristol and a Visiting Fellow in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Open University. She was part of the successful bid team and the Open University's lead for the ESRC-funded, inter-university Poverty and Social Exclusion research project, which ran from 2010 to 2015 and was the largest ever research project in the UK into poverty. In 2012, she set up the Poverty and Social Exclusion website - www.poverty.ac.uk - which has become an important source of information on poverty and social exclusion in the UK and is now extensively used by researchers, educators, students and the general public. She is co-author (with Stewart Lansley) of 'Breadline Britain - the rise of mass poverty' (Onewold, 2015) which draws on thirty years of research in this field.

Until January 2016, she was Head of Video and Audio for the university, overseeing the production of teaching materials. She worked, in particular, on a wide range of new modules for the social science faculty covering social policy, psychology, economics, politics and the environment.

After graduating from Cambridge University, she worked on New Society magazine before moving into broadcast television where she had a long and successful career as a producer/director of factual programmes working ofr first London Weekend Television and then running her own production company, Domino Films. During this period, her films and documentaries won many prestigious awards, including from BAFTA, Royal Television Society, British Film Institute, and British Universities Film and Video Council, and, internationally, from New York International Film and Television Festival, Chicago International Film Festival, San Francisco Festival and the CableAce Awards of North America.

She produced and directed the first Breadline Britain series in 1983 and was the series editor for the second series in the 1990s, both broadcast on the ITV network. For the 1983 series she set up the pioneering research survey behind the series which devised a new approach for measuring poverty based on the public's perceptions of necessities. This methodolog,y which she set out in 'Poor Britain' (1985), has been used by researchers and governments in the UK, the European Union and many other countries from Japan to South Africa.

She also produced and directed Lost Children of the Empire, a ground breaking documentary uncovering the story of child migration from the UK under which children as young a three were shipped to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the former Southern Rhodesia from the turn of the 20th century up until as the late 1960s. The film's broadcast in the UK and Australia, and the subsequent book of the same name, helped secure the foundation of the Child Migrants Trust and their work supporting families separated by these practices. Two decades later it led to official apologies from the Australian and UK governments.

She has written extensively about poverty and inequality, including for The Guardian, The Scotsman and Tribune. She has regularly been interviewed for radio about her work and has presented at a number of festivals including The South Bank Centre and the Edinburgh Book Festival.

Her books include:

Poor Britain (with Stewart Lansley), George Allen & Unwin, 1983.

London at War (with Steve Humphries), Sidgwick & Jackson, 1985.

A Century of Childhood (with Steve Humphries and Robert Perks), Sidgwick & Jackson, 1988.

Joanna Mendelssohn

Honorary (Senior Fellow) School of Culture and Communication University of Melbourne. Editor in Chief, Design and Art of Australia Online, The University of Melbourne
Joanna Mendelssohn studied under Bernard Smith as one of the first cohort of honours graduates in Fine Arts at the University of Sydney. She then worked at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, under Daniel Thomas and Tony Tuckson. After some years of working as a curator and then art critic, she joined UNSW where she became the coordinator of the Master of Art Administration, at the College of Fine Arts, UNSW where she also taught Australian art history and writing. On her retirement she was appointed an honorary associate professor.

Her first book was the seminal study on Sydney Long (1979). This was followed by a series of studies on Lionel Lindsay. The research for her book, Lionel Lindsay: an artist and his family (Chatto & Windus, London 1988) was supported by a Literature Board Fellowship. She later revisited the ways in which the mythology of the Lindsay family had been created in her PhD thesis at the University of Sydney, This was reworked and published as Letters & Liars: Norman Lindsay and the Lindsay family (Angus & Robertson 1996). She wrote the catalogue for the 1990 Yellow House exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and was curator for the touring exhibition Larter Family Values (Casula 2006) and Lionel's Place ( Maitland 2017).

Joanne Berry-Frith

Lecturer in Graphic Design and Illustration, Loughborough University
I have been working as an artist for more than 30 years. I am fascinated by light, colour, lasers, technology and science. My initial curiosity in how artists can work with scientists was piqued in 1998 when I became aware of the SciArt scheme. The ethos of the SciArt scheme encouraged me, as an artist, to seek out Life Scientists to collaborate with because the methods we employ to create images are connected. We both use laser technology (I make laser-cut lightboxes), which requires knowledge of light, optics, and computer visualisation methods, and I am fascinated by how I can use scientific image data innovatively. As a result, since 2010, a central part of my practice has involved contributing to scientific research projects as one of the research team.

I identified a gap in knowledge while working with scientists in labs. There was a lack of understanding between the two disciplines of approaches to imaging and its potential. I wanted to discover if and how an artist-researcher can contribute to new methods of interdisciplinary approaches in advanced imaging and microscopy through collaborative practice. Over the last ten years I have collaborated with Advanced imaging and Microscopy specialists, working with a network of internationally renowned core imaging laboratories in the field of Life Science. My aim is to dismantle silo mentalities so that artist-researchers can collaborate with scientists to create new representations, insights and behavioural change. I implemented a four-stage framework and protocol underpinned by the inclusion of play. Each element helped me negotiate and interpret art and science collaboration in new ways by extending art and scientific methods of visualisation. This led to non-standard representations, technological advancements, and better intellectual and visualisation skills, hence enhancing practice-based research through collaboration. Each element helped me negotiate and interpret art and science collaboration in new ways by extending art and scientific methods of visualisation. I advanced three methods of production: an introspective, digital drawing method using limited tools; data montages where data and documentary footage are explored; and experimental moving image work, integrating documentary film footage and sound. The work I will show at Coningsby Gallery showcases artwork made from three recent collaborations at:
• COMPARE, The Cell Signalling and Pharmacology Group and a minor study at the Molecular and the Cellular Biology Group, School of Life Sciences, Queens Medical School, University of Nottingham.
• Core Research Laboratories Imaging and Analysis Centre, Natural History Museum (NHM), London,

Joanne Welton

Lecturer in Biomedical Sciences, Cardiff Metropolitan University

Teaching

I teach on the MSc in Biomedical Sciences course from data analysis to medical biochemistry. I also teach on the BMS BSc course.
Research​

I consider my research background as cell biologist and biochemist, with my research interests centering on exploring the potential of extracellular vesicles (EVs), particularly exosomes, as a possible source of biomarkers for disease.

Exosomes are nanometre sized vesicles formed in the endocytic pathway within multivesicular bodies (MVBs). Upon fusion of the MVB with the cell membrane the exosomes contained within are released into the extracellular environment. These exosomes contain proteins, mRNA, miRNA and DNA from the secreting cell and are often enriched with proteins associated with disease, inflammation, and/or cellular stress. This makes them a potential source of multiple biomarkers for diseases, which can be obtained by minimally invasive means (from biofluids such as plasma and urine).

Exosomes as biomarkers for disease (2006-2010; 2013-present)

My most recent work has involved developing methods for the isolation of EVs from biological fluids and standardising their analysis for quality assurance. Once the isolation methodologies were optimised the proteome of these biofluid-derived EVs (plasma, urine and cerebrospinal fluid) were examined using a novel aptamer based protein arrays and analysed in silico through the use of the statistics package R. These methodologies have been used in the context of prostate cancer and multiple sclerosis biomarker discovery pilot studies. These two projects have shown the potential of both novel isolation methods for exosomes and protein analysis have the potential to identify novel disease biomarkers in follow-up studies.

Immunology Research (2011-2013)

Previous research has looked at the phenotype of peripheral blood mononuclear cells and plasma pro-inflammatory cytokines with respect to the acute phase response (APR) of osteoporosis patients and breast cancer patients undergoing aminobisphosphonate (nBP) treatment. We identified that peripheral γδ T cells and Monocytes became rapidly activated and ultimately determines the clinical severity of the APR in nBP naïve osteoporosis patients. The findings of this study may have diagnostic and prognostic implications for patients with and without malignancy as well as relevance for Vγ9/Vδ2 T-cell based immunotherapy. We also undertook a comprehensive meta-analysis of 15 randomized clinical trials patients on adjuvant therapy for breast cancer with zoledronate, identifying a significant overall survival benefit with zoledronate treatment. These new findings supported the call for zoledronate to be considered as a new standard of care in adjuvant breast cancer therapy.

Joe Cable

Senior Lecturer in PR Media and Communications, Media, Swansea University
Jonathan joined Swansea University as Senior Lecturer in PR, Media, and Communications in 2022 where he teaches across a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate modules mainly focusing on public relations, sport, and journalism.

Alongside his teaching Jonathan’s research career originally began by examining protest and its utilisation for pollical communication before shifting focus to concentrate more fully on the world of sport and its relationship with wider society. His work includes: the use of football related clickbait on social media by major media organisations; constructions of nationalism among ‘proper football men’; the newspaper representation of England men’s football international Raheem Sterling compared to Sterling’s self-representation on social media; and fan reactions on social media to suspected racism during a football match among others. Due to these expertise he’s been used as a source for media outlets such as The Athletic, BBC Radio Gloucestershire, and French football website SoFoot.

Jonathan is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and is an external examiner at Chester University, and Edge Hill University. Jonathan sits on the editorial board of the Football Collective whose aim is to bring critical debate to football, and is a member of the Football Writers Association. He also acts as an Associate Editor for the Sport Section of the academic journal Cogent Social Sciences.
