David Junior Gilbert is a current Ph.D. student within the School of Health and Society at the University of Salford. With a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry and an MSc in Public health (University of Salford), his current Ph.D. research focuses on the factors that pre-dispose individuals with FASD to involvement with the criminal justice system. During his MSc, his research focused on social worker’s experiences working with children who have FASD. 

Before resuming studies in England, Gilbert had the privilege of gaining years of working (including managerial) experience within the pharmaceutical industry in West Africa, Nigeria. This led him to gain enormous experience in the oncology and virology franchise of Roche pharmaceuticals, based in Bazel, Switzerland.
