Brian Cantor was educated at Manchester Grammar School and Christ's College, Cambridge. He has worked at Sussex, Oxford, and York Universities, and with leading companies, such as Alcan, Elsevier, General Electric, and Rolls-Royce. He is on the boards of White Rose, Worldwide Universities Network, Yorkshire Science, and the National Science Learning Centre; and was on the boards of Amaetham, York Science Park, Isis Innovation, and the Kobe Institute. He has advised agencies such as EPSRC, NASA, the EU, and the Dutch, Spanish, and German governments. At Oxford he was Cookson Professor of Materials, the first head of the Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, and a member of the General Board and Council. He was appointed in 2002 as vice-chancellor of the University of York.
His research investigates the manufacture of materials and has contributed to improvements in products such as electrical transformers, pistons, car brakes, aeroengines, and lithographic sheeting. He has supervised over 130 research students and post doctoral fellows, published over 300 papers, books, and patents, and given over 100 invited talks in more than 15 countries.
He was awarded the Rosenhain and Platinum Medals of the Institute of Materials, the first for "outstanding academic/industrial collaboration" and the second for "lifetime contributions to materials science." He is an honorary professor at Northeastern University Shenyang, Zhejiang University, and the Chinese Institute of Materials, and is a member of the Academia Europea, and the World Technology Forum and is on the ISI list of Most Cited Scientists. He is a fellow of the Institute of Materials, the Institute of Physics, and the Royal Academy of Engineering, elected to the Royal Academy as "a world authority on materials manufacturing."
Patrick Grant received a B.Eng. in metallurgy and materials science from Nottingham University in 1987, and a D. Phil, in materials from Oxford University in 1991. He was a Royal Society University research fellow and Reader in the Department of Materials, Oxford University, and became Cook-son Professor of Materials at Oxford University in 2004. His published work of over 100 papers concerns advanced materials and processes for industrial structural and functional applications, especially in the aerospace and automotive sectors. He has been granted three patents licensed to industry.
He was director of the Oxford Centre for Advanced Materials and Composites (1999-2004) that coordinates industrially related materials at Oxford University and is currently director of Faraday Advance, a component of the Materials Knowledge Transfer Network, a government and industry funded national partnership that links the science base with industry in the field of advanced materials. Faraday Advance focuses on new materials-lightweight and low environmental impact materials for transport applications. He is a member of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise Panel for Materials and a member of the Defense and Aerospace National Advisory Committee for Materials and Structures.
Colin Johnston splits his time as a technology translator with Faraday Advance-the Transport Node of the Materials Knowledge Transfer Network-and as coordinator of the Institute of Industrial Materials and Manufacturing section of the Department of Materials, Oxford University, where he has held the position of senior research fellow since 2001. He received a B.Sc. (Honors) in chemistry from the University of Dundee in 1984, followed by a Ph.D. in surface science and catalysis in 1987, also from the University of Dundee. In 1987 he joined AEA Technology at the Harwell Laboratory where he was a member of the Materials Development Division specializing in materials characterization. He later developed electronic materials for harsh environments, working on wide band gap semiconductors and micro systems. Johnston was operations manager of the Electronic Materials and Thermal Management business of AEA Technology from 1998 to 2000, when he assumed a post within the central corporate structure, managing innovation and new technology acquisitions for the company.
He is director of HITEN-the EU-funded network for high temperature electronics, where he established a pan-European strategy. He is also cochair of the U.S. High Temperature Electronics Biennial Conference Series and has published over 80 papers in scientific journals and edited several books on high-temperature electronics.
