Business Partnerships Associate

As Business Partnerships Associate at the Business Partnerships Office, Medical Sciences Division (MSD), my role is to strengthen the connections between the division and industry.

I support the team in developing our business networks and establishing new business relationships, with a focus on Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). I assist with existing key strategic business research partnerships with pharmaceutical companies, including Bristol Myers Squibb, GSK (formerly GlaxoSmithKline) and Johnson & Johnson Innovative Medicine (formerly Janssen Pharmaceuticals).

Additionally, I support operational aspects of Industry Fellows and Postdocs Network, that brings together MSD’s fellows and post-doctoral researchers who are working collaboratively with industry, and Pan-University Business Partnerships Professionals Network, that supports intra-university communication among business partnerships professionals at Oxford.

Before joining the team at Oxford, I briefly worked as a Product Marketing Manager at Qkine, a University of Cambridge spin-out, where I gained valuable insights into the challenges faced by SMEs. Prior to relocating to the UK, I facilitated establishing and developing the neuronal organoid platform at McGill University in Canada. At McGill, in a research scientific role for about 5 years, whilst leading the Organoid Quality control and Maintenance node within The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital)'s Early Drug Discovery Unit. I collaborated and maintained long and successful partnerships with other academic groups, biotech and pharmaceutical companies. I hold a Master’s in Biotechnology from McGill University, Canada, with a background in neuroscience, specifically in neurodegeneration (Parkinson’s Disease) and neuronal organoids.
