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 Scandal, which 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.
