Dr Griffin was one of the founders of the 1001inventions initiative in Manchester while serving as Director of the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. He has also served as a member of the steering committee to the first phase of the new global 1001inventions exhibition. He is now CEO of the Oxford Trust, which set up and manages Science Oxford, a modern science gallery which brings scientists and the public together in a unique and stimulating environment.
Dr Griffin is an established professional astronomer and the former head of public outreach at NASA's Space Telescope Science Institute. He also acts as a freelance science engagement consultant. We are glad to congratulate Ian on his Fellowship. MHAG is greatly benefitted by the support of such distinguished members.
