  • OUR STAFF

    Andy: Project Development Manager

    After finishing my PhD at CRUK’s London Research Institute, I obtained a 6 month internship at CRUK’s Centre for Drug Development (CDD). Exposure to CRT during my PhD and internship highlighted the diverse blend of science and business activities that are performed in the organisation and fuelled my desire to work for the company. I also have passion for cancer research and drug development. As Project Development Manager I am responsible for the identification and review of projects and technologies that have translatable and commercial potential in the field of oncology. I am also involved in the initiation and management of IP protection, scientific and business development of projects and aiding collaboration between academia and industry.

     

    Grainne: Scientist

    Before I started at CRT I was doing a Postdoc. I was interested in working at CRT because I wanted to move into more translational research and drug discovery. My research has always been focused on cancer biology, but more basic biology so I wanted to work on projects with a more translational focus and clinical objective. I know work in the Target Validation & Disease Positioning Group, as part of the DDR (DNA Damage Repair) team. It is a lab based position, involving target validation and disease positioning of various targets/projects, along with some cell-based assay.

     

    James: Scientific Portfolio Associate at Ximbio

    Ximbio is CRT’s online reagents portal for the life science community. It’s been created to enable the sharing of research tools (such as antibodies, mice and cell lines) within the global life science community. As a Scientific Portfolio Associate I source and manage several Universities’ research tools, manage the business development of some research-related software and manage sales of research tools at Ximbio. Before working here I was employed as a postdoc. I was looking for a way to progress from my research career and still use my scientific experience and as Ximbio work with both commercial companies and academic scientists it seemed to be a perfect fit.
