Long server Dave Hartley, Lecturer (Cell and Molecular Biology) speaks to Reporter about his twenty years of service to the College.
Dave began his career at Imperial in April 1990 as a lecturer in the Department of Life Sciences. From 1999–2004, Dave was Director of Undergraduate Studies for Biochemistry and in 2007, he was appointed Senior Tutor for Life Sciences, with responsibility for the pastoral care of students. Dave currently teaches a number of courses within the Biochemistry degree programme, including Molecular Biology and Molecular Cell Biology for first year students and Molecular Basis of Development for third year students. “What I enjoy most about the job is working with young students and being able to captivate them with my teaching,” explains Dave. “Knowledge spreads like a virus amongst students and it is a most rewarding experience seeing it happen,” he adds. Outside the College, Dave is a keen Queen’s Park Rangers fan.
