In his early years as a research scientist Bruce worked in the Tumour Virus section at the prestigious Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York, and then spent several years in the Virology Department of the then Fairfield Infectious Diseases Hospital in Melbourne. Bruce’s main focus over recent years has been the remediation of contaminated soil and groundwater in many countries.
