Clare Wilson

Health reporter

United Kingdom

I am an award-winning reporter at New Scientist, the world’s leading science and technology magazine and website. Before that, I wrote for a doctor's weekly newspaper called Hospital Doctor, and a newsletter for the pharmaceutical industry, called Scrip. At New Scientist, I report on everything life-science-related, from Ageing to Zika. My exploits include watching brain surgery close-up, having my pain threshold tested while lying in a brain scanner and a trip in the European Space Agency’s vomit comet.
