Professor Hal Sosabowski, Professor of Public Understanding, acts as science consultant for the CBBC children’s series Operation Ouch!, which aims to make medicine and science fun and accessible for children.
Professor Sosabowski, who advises on how to conduct safe experiments, said: “The programme has already won two BAFTAs and is now one of CBBC’s crown jewels. It focuses on the more macabre and disgusting but at the same time, strangely compulsive elements of the human body.”
The university’s School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences has been contributing to the programme since it was launched in 2012 and filming has been conducted at labs at the Huxley Building in Moulsecoomb, Brighton, and at a lab at the Hastings campus. The programme is hosted by Christoffer and Alexander van Tulleken.
