I recruit the highest quality chemists from diverse backgrounds who are responsible for discovering and making new medicines within GSK's research and development laboratories. This includes chemistry graduates, postgraduates and over 40 chemistry industrial placement students from across Europe each year.
In addition, I am programme director of GSK's professional development programme designed to ensure that our talented chemists continue to develop and progress within the organisation. This is in association with the University of Kent (Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Development) and the University of Strathclyde (Collaborative MPhil/PhD).
