What does JIC do for the Media?

JIC regularly contributes its expertise to TV and radio news and documentary programmes

JIC welcomes enquiries from the media. As an independent research organisation we can provide you with information and advice on a wide range of plant and microbial science topics from our expert scientists. If we are unable to help we will always try to refer you to someone who can.

We regularly contribute our expertise to TV and radio news and documentary programmes. Our scientists have recently contributed to Horizon, Bang Goes the Theory, Gardeners World, BBC Radio 4′s Today Programme, BBC News and more.

We have an ISDN studio available for interviews and can supply high resolution digital images to illustrate copy.
