James Simpson's Research Group

[Dr James Charles Edward Simpson moved to Durham from an assistant lectureship at King's College of London University in 1939 to take up a temporary (wartime) lectureship in organic chemistry at Durham. The post lapsed in 1944 on the return to Durham of Alec Waters from wartime secondment and in 1945 Simpson took up a fellowship at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, receiving a D.Sc. from Liverpool University in the same year. At the time of his death in 1952, aged 43, he was on the staff of the Medical Research Council (having been appointed in 1946) as director of its chemotherapy research group at Manchester University, where he had worked since 1950.
