Brenda Grimes who is currently a Publications Co-ordinator for Global Scientific Communications at Eli Lilly and Company, a multi-national pharmaceutical company which has been responsible for the development, clinical testing and delivery to market of many life-changing products. Will speak at 11.30am on Wednesday 21st March 2018 in P118, Coats Building, Paisley Campus about her career in a talk called:
“Changing Course: a personal journey from academia to industry”
Brenda is an alumnus of Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities and has spent a majority of her working life in academia, where she led a research group studying chromosomes and potential therapeutic targets.
More recently she moved to the pharmaceutical industry, working in scientific publications and external innovation. From her early days at the laboratory bench to now overseeing the scientific publication strategy for a number of molecules at a multi-national pharmaceutical company, Brenda has been hugely influenced by the need to develop new medicines for patients and working across teams with a focus on inclusion.
This is an exciting opportunity for colleagues and students to hear first hand of a career path spanning academia and industry.
