MALCOLM JACKSON is a semi-retired scientist living in the lakes. His main work experience has been in medical research as a Professor and previously Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Impact at the University to Liverpool with a substantial research interest in ageing and why we all get weak as we get older. This has involved studies in cells, people and animals and included experiments examining the rapid loss of muscle force and strength that occur in space on the International Space Station. His mountaineering interests developed as he grew up in the western lakes which has included rock climbing and hill walking in much of the UK and alpine ascents of many 4000m peaks. I have a big interest in mountaineering history and developments and am delighted to be able to build on this to help the MHT in its mission to celebrate and share the exciting heritage of British mountaineering and climbing.
A diverse and enthusiastic team are ensuring that mountain heritage is protected for now and for the future. We're a small team but we've got big ambitions.
