Jean Fleming has won the 2016 New Zealand Association of Scientists Science Communicator Medal.

The retired geneticist was involved with the Royal Commission on Genetic Modification in 2000 and 2001, and taught at the Centre for Science Communication at the University of Otago.

She says that good science communication is as much about listening to other people’s points of views as it is talking about science.

Jean has a regular slot talking about Body Parts on Nights with Bryan Crump.
