Research interests

Lucas joined the University of Strathclyde in September, 2016. Before that, he studied at the University of Edinburgh and University of London (School of Advanced Study). He also held a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship in Canada as well as worked in policy at the Health Quality Council. In 2014, he published a monograph called Conservatism, Consumer Choice, and the FDA during the Reagan Era: A Prescription for Scandalwhich examined the politicisation of pharmaceutical regulation in the 1970s-1980s. It was awarded the 2015 British Association for American Studies Arthur Miller Centre First Book Prize. He's currently at work on a new manuscript for McGill-Queen's University Press, in the History of Medicine, Health, and Society Series. The book, tentatively called Strange Medicines, interrogates how dangerous drugs can become magic bullets, and vice versa.
