Science and morality – can I blame my genes?

Keith Fox

Professor Keith Fox

Biological Sciences, Southampton University

Keith Fox studied biochemistry and obtained his PhD in pharmacology at Cambridge University.  He has worked at the Universities of Cambridge and Southampton and was for several years a Fellow of the Lister Institute of Preventive Medicine.  He is currently Professor of Biochemistry at Southampton, and is also Associate Director of the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion at St Edmund’s College Cambridge.  His research is on DNA, the molecule of genetics and heredity.

Keith is the editor of Science and Christian Belief, the journal of Christians in Science, of which he is a trustee and former Chairman.  He is a lay reader in an Anglican church in Southampton.

With this expertise in biochemistry and genetics, and a long-term involvement in organisations seeking to relate science and Christian faith, Keith is an ideal speaker to tackle a subject that is often in the news when we hear of genetic influences on our behaviour and health.
