Nicole Le Grand
Business Partnerships Manager
As Business Partnerships Manager, I support the Director of Business Partnerships in promoting stronger links between the division and industry. I assist with the development and implementation of strategies designed to increase the number of research collaborations and am responsible for seeking out and progressing new opportunities. I help build interactions with key strategic partners GSK, UCB and companies working on Rare Diseases.
Prior to joining the team, I was Strategic Programme Manager of the MDUK Oxford Neuromuscular Centre at the University of Oxford. I have a strong background in programme and project management within the field of translational medical research, previously managing H2020 and nationally funded projects focusing on Parkinson Disease at the University of Luxembourg.
I hold a PhD in Biochemistry with international research experience focused on neurodegeneration.
