Megan Joseph

BBSRC LIDo PhD in The Nanoscale 3D Architecture of Signalling Proteins in T Lymphocytes

I am a PhD student at UCL and King’s about half-way through my studies. My research focuses on using super-resolution imaging techniques to investigate T cell signalling. I am an immunologist by background but am doing a very interdisciplinary PhD and enjoy data science. In my free time I enjoy baking! I will be interning with MedCity for 3 months mainly focusing on building a report investigating how local communities can benefit from education and training opportunities in life sciences clusters.

Lucille Harvey

MSc Human-Computer Interaction

I have an BSc in Psychology from Bournemouth University and am currently undertaking an MSc in Human-Computer Interaction at UCL. I am working with MedCity on my master’s thesis where I am evaluating a framework to help SMEs developing Digital Health Technologies to overcome some of the barriers around non-adoption and scale-up within the NHS. I have previously worked in the NHS coordinating mental health research and within Business Development. After completing my masters, I will be returning to the NHS as a UX Designer for Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. My interests include health technologies, Artificial Intelligence, Mental Health and Ethics.

Previously I was a project officer for the NIHR Collaborations in Leadership in Applied Health and Care Northwest London (NIHR CLAHRC NWL). I graduated with a BSc International Relations from the University of Essex and a MSc International Health Policy from the London School of Economics and Political Science. I have collaborated with MedCity over the years with networking events and workshops. I collaborated with MedCity on my MSc dissertation project which looked at SMEs perspectives on accelerator programmes, this is currently in draft for publication.

Thomas Foord

University of Oxford
Medical Student

I am a medical student at the University of Oxford, with interests in clinical research and innovation. During my time at MedCity I worked on projects looking at the current landscape of Health Data and Digital Health Innovations. The work I did gave me a whole new perspective on the organisation of healthcare and understanding the challenges facing the NHS when innovating using new technologies. I hope the knowledge, experiences and colleagues I’ve gained during my time at MedCity will benefit me as I involve myself in new and exciting projects alongside finishing my medical training.

Alexandra Black

Birkbeck, University of London

MSc Bio-Business

After graduating with a Bachelor of Business-Communication from Queensland University of Technology in Australia, I moved to Japan where I worked in financial communications and journalism—spanning risk analysis reporting, technical editing, and writing on Japanese business and material culture. Since relocating to London a decade ago, I have been writing on business, science and design, and helping publishing clients develop new products. Drawn to life sciences, I completed a Science Foundation degree before starting an MSc Bio-Business at Birkbeck. My internship at MedCity is giving me the opportunity to become immersed in the life sciences ecosystem, while contributing to MedCity’s business communication strategies and content generation.
