Claudia Ferreira
Cambridge, United Kingdom + intro

Brief intro
I have always had an interest in understanding how biological processes are regulated and how they result in organism homeostasis. this had lead me to pursue a PhD in Life sciences and a subsequent Post-doctoral position. However, I found that there a divide between pursuit of the understanding how an organism works and what causes disease and actually seeking to create better treatments and diagnostics to improve quality of life. Therefore, I embarked in the world of entrepreneurship with the aim to create real impact by attempting to arm the scientific community with better and more reliable research tools as well as development diagnostics to fulfill unmet needs.

Brief intro
During my PhD at University of Trento, Italy, and postgraduate experience at New York University, I devised emulsions and liposomes encapsulating biological molecules that I would like to commercialize. I developed these systems in a very multidisciplinary and international academic context but lacking of entrepreneurial spirit. I would be thrilled to join your program and bridge this gap, leading my interests towards the bioscience industry. I want to learn how to commercialize ideas and devices developed in research laboratories and how develop business models to initiate my own company.

My area of focus and interest varies from quantitative analysis to project management. I gained solid research, analytical and problem solving skills while working in academy but I miss a good knowledge
