My work at Uppsala BIO:
I mainly work to attract players / companies to Testa Center, where academic research groups, start-ups, SMEs and larger companies can verify their technical or biological innovations in an authentic bioprocessing facility.
Why I work at Uppsala BIO:
Being ‘where it happens’ excites me! And so much is happening in the life science industry right now. Since I also have long and solid experience of this sector, this new assignment suits me perfectly!
I am passionate about:
Creating opportunities so that players in the life science industry become more successful, thus contributing to growth in our region as well as in Sweden.
Laboratory Assistant education in Microbiology plus MSc in Biotechnology with a Degree Project at CSIRO, Sydney, Australia.
My previous work experience:
Early on, as a Technical Support Specialist at Amersham Pharmacia Biotech, I realised the importance of creating good relationships to achieve success. Working as a Key Account Manager at the same company further deepened this insight, which greatly benefitted my strategic interaction with marketing and development, primarily within Protein Analysis / Biomolecular Imaging.
I then moved on and worked for a couple of years as Global Brand Manager for Restylane at Galderma. It was exciting to work with a medtech product aimed at consumers. What’s more, the regulatory aspects were interesting and there were clinical indications as well.
As a programme manager for the business incubator Uppsala Innovation Centre, I had the privilege of working actively with business development support for entrepreneurs and start-ups. The experiences and networks gained there will now be put to good use in my new role at Uppsala BIO.
