Why did you join the ABC?

In a nutshell, it provided me with the opportunity to combine my scientific background with my management and project development skills. The more detailed answer though is that I can see the huge potential in applying engineering principles to biological processes. With the experience I have had, working for example for Cancer Research UK in the past, I have had some insight into the beneficial uses of biotherapeutics in patient care. It is great to join such an innovative research environment where close working with industry enables more of the research to have real world benefit.
