Russell is a British professor of circadian neuroscience at Brasenose College, University of Oxford. His research interests span both visual and circadian neurobiology with the main focus on the mechanisms whereby light regulates vertebrate circadian rhythms.
He and his group are credited with the discovery of the non-rod, non-cone, photosensitive ganglion cells in the mammalian retina which provide input to the circadian rhythm system. Foster is an elected fellow of the Royal Society and member of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.
Educated at the University of Bristol with a PhD in Neuroscience from 1984, Foster was a member of the National Science Foundation Center for Biological Rhythms at the University of Virginia before returning to the UK. Internationally, he has received several awards for his discovery of ocular photoreceptors. He is the co-author with writer and broadcaster Leon Kreitzman of two popular science books on circadian rhythms, Rhythms of Life: The Biological Clocks that Control the Daily Lives of Every Living Thing and Seasons of Life: The Biological Rhythms That Enable Living Things to Thrive and Survive.
