Simon Kolstoe

Dr Simon Kolstoe completed a PhD in biochemistry followed by 10 years working in drug discovery initially at UCL Medical School and then at the University of Portsmouth, latterly funded by a BBSRC new investigator award. 

While conducting this biomedical research he developed an interest in research ethics. He is now Ethics Advisor and Senior Lecturer in Research Ethics at the University of Portsmouth, and has experience chairing NHS and MOD research ethics committees. 

Current research interests include reporting bias, ethics committee consistency, the development of institutional (both academic and government) policies that promote research integrity, and how the paradigms of  research ethics may need to be re-examined in light of the possibilities around 'big data'.
