Born in Belfast in 1946, Barklie was educated at Queen’s University, where he gained a ﬁrst class honours degree in Botany.

He returned to the UK in 1974 to take up a position as a member of the scientiﬁc staff at the MRC Virology Unit in Glasgow and one year later joined the Institute of Virology at Glasgow University as a lecturer.
