Dr Michael Mosley is a BBC science presenter, experienced medical journalist and executive producer for some of television's most engaging factual entertainment and current affairs programmes.

The son of a bank director, Michael Mosley initially studied philosophy, politics and economics at the New College, Oxford before working for two years as a banker in the City of London. He then decided to move into medicine, intending to become a psychiatrist, studying at the Royal Free Hospital Medical School, now part of UCL Medical School. However, he became disillusioned by psychiatry and immediately after graduating joined a trainee assistant producer scheme at the BBC.

He worked behind-the-scenes on programmes such as Newsnight, Tomorrow's World and Horizon and produced a number of science programmes including ‘The Human Face' with John Cleese, three series with Professor Robert Winston, and the 2004 BBC2 engineering series ‘Inventions That Changed the World' starring Jeremy Clarkson.

As a presenter, Michael Mosley has fronted ‘10 Things You Need to Know about Losing Weight', ‘Blood and Guts', ‘Medical Mavericks' and ‘The Story of Science' for television, and ‘The Making of Modern Medicine' for Radio 4. In 2010 he produced and presented the series ‘The Story of Science: Power, Proof and Passion' for BBC2.

In 2011 Michael made a series entitled ‘The Brain: A Secret History', on the history of psychology and neuroscience. In the same year, he made a two-part documentary, ‘Frontline Medicine' with episodes called Survival and Rebuilding Lives. These programmes focused on the medical advances in the treatment of military personnel during the 10 years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan and examine how these new techniques are being utilised in emergency medicine for civilian casualties in the United States and Great Britain.

Michael was nominated for an Emmy and BAFTA for his Horizon documentary revealing the proposed link between Helicobacter pylori and gastric ulcers, and was named Medical Journalist of the Year in 1995 by the British Medical Association.
