Associate Director, AstraZeneca
Laura is passionate about supporting life science innovation and connecting the early innovation ecosystem. She has a background in academia through her degrees in Biology from Oxford, cancer stem cells from Bristol, molecular evolutionary genetics from Cambridge, and a Fellowship in molecular genetics and genomics from Christ Church Oxford. She has experience in entrepreneurship and finance through her roles setting up the UK operation of an equity crowdfunding platform specialised in life sciences, and new company creation and financing in the Seed Funds team at Cambridge Enterprise. Laura has now joined industry as part of the Partnering and Strategy team at AstraZeneca, where she is supporting external innovation activities with particular responsibility for respiratory, digital, and ecosystem collaborations. She is also the proud mum of three rather active boys who, as complete strangers often like to point out, ‘keep her on her toes’.
