About the Serial Volume Editors

Jos Boys

Dr Jos Boys trained in architecture and has worked as a journalist, teacher, researcher and design practitioner. She has taught architecture and interior design (in both the design studio and through history and theory) for many years across many universities, both in the UK and abroad. Her research focuses on the social aspects of architecture and interior design. This is underpinned by a design and artistic practice centred on working with community and disadvantaged groups. She is especially interested in how design intersects with gender, class, race and disability; and in finding creative forms of collaboration with non-designers. Jos has an MA in photography and likes to use a variety of media and approaches to open up productive ‘spaces’ between designers educators, students, artists and the wider public.

John Gardner

John’s research is situated at the intersection of medical sociology and science and technology studies (STS), and it examines the interplay between biomedicine, individuals and society, particularly in regard to cutting-edge biomedical innovation. His research has focused predominately on two, much-championed areas of biomedicine: the development and implementation of deep brain stimulation and other neurotechnologies, and; the attempts by stakeholders in several countries to create a ‘health and wealth’ generating Regenerative Medicine industry.
