Brothers Julian and Jeffery studied at King’s in the 1950s. Since then, their lives have taken them down different paths and to different continents. Julian gained his PhD in Biophysics in the lab of the Nobel Laureate Maurice Wilkins. His inventions as an international research scientist have contributed to many fields. His team invented the famous ‘Western Blot’, a protein test used widely in molecular biology and HIV-AIDS testing. He was also behind the technology that led to the first home pregnancy tests. He recently became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.
Ever the entrepreneur, at 76, he co-founded a start-up to help allergy and asthma sufferers. Inspirotec has a home kit called Exhale that measures allergens in the air using technology originally developed for space travel.
