Event description

Description

The LMB's annual 'What next for your career in science?' talk will take place on Thursday 30th June, 12-2pm in the Max Perutz Lecture Theatre.

This year, three speakers will cover the topics of Academic Fellowships, Biotechnology and Clinical Trials Coordination:

Dr Hayley Sharpe, Principal Investigator at the CIMR, University of Cambridge

Hayley completed her PhD studies at the LMB in 2010 and in 2011 joined Genentech Inc., South San Francisco as a postdoc. In 2016, she was awarded a Wellcome Trust/Royal Society Sir Henry Dale Fellowship and established her own research group. Her lab investigates how cells communicate through tyrosine phosphatase signalling using proteomics, genetics and cell biology approaches.

Dr Burcu Babaoglan Fiehler, Clinical Trials Coordinator in Cambridge Clinical Trials Centre (CCTU-CT)

Burcu carried out her PhD studies at Washington University in St Louis, MO, USA, finishing in 2008. In 2009 she joined Sarah Bray's Lab in the Cambridge University PDN department as a postdoc to continue her work on Notch signalling. In 2013, she finished her postdoc and steered away from basic science towards clinical research to work on cancer trials in CCTU. She currently runs a multi-centre trial called SIEGE to investigate two different schedules of nab-paclitaxel combined with gemcitabine as first line treatment for metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.

Dr Ryan Fiehler, Senior Scientist at F-star Biotechnology Ltd

Ryan completed his studies at Washington University in St. Louis in 2007 and joined Fiona Watt's lab at the CRUK Cambridge Institute in 2009 as a post-doc investigating skin homeostasis and cancer. This research was funded by the NIH under the Ruth L Kirchstein grant awarded in 2010. In 2013 Ryan joined F-star Biotechnology Ltd, engineering bi-specific antibodies. He is currently the lead scientist on a project targeting an immune checkpoint regulator.

Burcu and Ryan will give an insight into their successful two-career partnership.

The speakers will lead a short panel discussion after their talks followed by a buffet lunch which will provide a great opportunity for networking and gaining advice about making that next step!

All are welcome and the event is free to attend, but please register at eventbrite.
