Industry careers for molecular bioscientists
Time: 13:00 – 14:00
The latest webinar in our Biochemistry Focus series is organized in association with ELRIG and explores career options in industry for bioscientists. Our panel comprises representatives working in industry, in a few different roles, who have entered the sector through various routes. This event will provide attendees with the opportunity to gain an insight into working in industry and offer the chance to ask questions directly to our panel.
This session will be chaired by Malcolm Weir, Executive Vice Chairman at Sosei Heptares and Chair of the Biochemical Society’s Industry Advisory Panel. Our panellists at this event are:
- Gerard Collins is Human Resources Director at Sosei Heptares, an international biopharmaceutical group focused on the design and early development of new medicines originating from its proprietary GPCR-targeted StaR® technology and structure-based drug design platform capabilities
- Scott Cribbes is the Business Development Director – EMEAI at Nexcelom Bioscience and sits on a working group for ELRIG. Having worked in research labs in academia, biotech, pharma and diagnostics for a decade, he moved to a more commercial role where he became an application specialist and has also dabbled in product management and marketing!
- Panchali Goswami is a Scientific Investigator at GlaxoSmithKline. On completing her PhD in structural biology, Panchali changed fields and undertook post-doctoral training in biomarker discovery and clinical proteomics, and later post-doctoral training where she studied protein complexes involved in DNA replication. With this multidisciplinary scientific background, she made a smooth transition to the pharmaceutical industry where she is part of a team studying health and disease related macromolecues to support the development of medicines.
- Jennifer Mitchell is a Research Scientist at Redx Pharma and a board member of ELRIG. She completed her integrated undergraduate and Masters degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Liverpool, and took on a graduate industrial role as an Associate Scientist working for a biotech company. After two years, Jennifer went back to academia to complete a PhD and is now working back in industry at Redx Pharma.
