Prof. Peter Clarke (deceased)



Peter Clarke was Associate Professor at the Department of Cell Biology and Morphology, University of Lausanne, Switzerland. Following a first degree in Engineering Science (1968) at the University of Oxford, he did a PhD with philosopher-neurobiologist Donald MacKay at the University of Keele (UK), then postdoctoral jobs in Oxford and St. Louis (USA), before moving to Lousanne in 1977. His research focussed on neuronal death - occurring naturally in development, or pathologically in cerebral ischemia and hypoxia. He has been awarded two international prizes (the Ingle Writing Award and the Demuth Foundation Award for Medical Research).

Peter Clarke was Associate Editor of the journal Science and Christian Belief and lectured widely on science and religion, mainly on questions relating to the brain. He was very active promoting science-religion dialogue in the French-speaking world and was a founding member of the Reseau des Scientifiques Evangeliques. He was a member of an evangelical church in Lausanne. He was a memeber of the Faraday Institute's Advisory Board until his death in October 2015.
