Evelien is a white woman in early middle age with brown collar-length hair. She is wearing a white shirt open over a white T-shirt, with a silver necklace around her neck. Ju is a white woman in early middle age with dark red hennaed hair and black-framed glasses. She is wearing a black top, and her wrists and thumbs are in black support braces.

During my 12-month residency at the National Institute of Medical Research (NIMR) I worked closely with two medical research scientists, Malcolm Logan and Evelien Gevers, meeting up with them more or less monthly and corresponding with them between times by email. Due to the cramped conditions in which medical research scientists work, many of our real life conversations took place in canteens - conversations with Malcolm in the NIMR canteen, and conversations with Evelien in the University College Hospital canteen. Later I took my notes of these conversations and put my questions to Malcolm and Evelien again in writing, so they could answer them in a form that would be accessible here.
