Raphael studied Sociology at the University of Kent at Canterbury starting in the late 1990s. In 1998 she was quoted as part of the Open Campus group in a report in the Times Higher Education Supplement, written by Jennie Bristow (another associate of the LM network):
- At the University of Kent at Canterbury, students have launched a campaign to prevent increased security measures on campus. For one student, Ellen Raphael of the Open Campus group, it has all gone too far. The heightened emphasis on personal safety has students jumping at their own shadows, the 20-year-old sociology student believes.
Raphael has a Masters degree from the University of Kent, Canterbury (UKC). While there she wrote an article for the magazine LM (formerly Living Marxism) to which Brown, who also studied at UKC where she was a research associate of the sociologist Frank Furedi, has also contributed. All three are part of what might be termed the LM network.
Both Brown and Raphael, prior to working for Sense About Science, worked for the PR company Regester Larkin, which numbers several biotech corporations amongst its clients. One of Raphael's colleagues was former Monsanto man, Harry Swan. Prior to Regester Larkin, Raphael worked for the British Pregnancy Advisory Service whose current Chief Executive is Ann Furedi, the wife of Frank Furedi.
The phone number for Sense About Science is shared by the 'publishing house' Global Futures another project of the LM network. According to the Charity commission  the contact person for Global Futures at the time was Raphael:
- Charity Correspondent ELLEN RAPHAEL
- P O BOX 138
- ME13 8LW
- Email Address firstname.lastname@example.org
- Website Address www.futureproof.org
Global Futures' two trustees, Phil Mullan and Michael Fitzpatrick, were both regular contributors to LM and are, like Frank Furedi, core members of the LM network. Fitzpatrick is also on the Board of Trustees of Sense About Science. Mullan is the registrant of the Spiked-online website. Spiked was at that stage edited by Mick Hume the former editor of LM.
Raphael was among those who helped Tony Gilland organise the Institute of Ideas ' Genes and Society Festival. The IoI is another project of the LM network. She also assisted Bill Durodie in organising a conference on communicating about terrorism at the Royal Institution. As with the Genes and Society Festival, the series of speakers, like Frank Furedi, and session chairs, like Fiona Fox, who had long-term LM connections, were not identified as such to fellow participants.
