12 Feb 2014: Female leaders in (bio)technology

WISE@QMUL presents a lunchtime panel discussion: Female leaders in (bio)technology.

Have you ever considered stepping out of research into the world of business? Have you ever wondered how you might be able to apply the transferable skills you picked up during your PhD to start your own company?

WISE@QMUL have invited two female scientists-turned-entrepreneurs to tell you how they made their transition into start-up executive roles and give advice on how you might also do the same. We will also discuss how being female has helped or hindered their entrepreneurial path till now; and what advice they might have for other women who are struggling with leadership in general.


  • Dominique Kleyn, Director, Sierra MedTech
