Research and Innovation Development Manager - Faculty of Biological Sciences. As the R&I development manager in the Faculty of Biological Sciences I work with academics to develop high quality research grant applications and business development proposals.

Prior to joining the University of Leeds I was a Principal Scientist and Project Director for an international pharmaceutical company. I have extensive experience of the drug discovery and development process, from target identification through to identification of candidate drugs for progression into preclinical safety studies and phase I clinical trials. My expertise in drug discovery and development spans a wide range of diseases including chronic pain, cancer, autoimmune diseases, allergic disorders and hypertension.
