After graduating with a masters in Translational Neuroscience I was keen to develop and apply my commercial, scientific, and data analyst skills whilst contributing to the scientific community, therefore a career at Hanson Wade appealed to me and led me to join Beacon.
Beacon is a Hanson Wade data product that provides clinical trial and pipeline data to aid drug developers and service providers make better-informed strategic decisions. In 2021 I joined the Beacon team as a researcher when a new module covering RNA therapeutics was being built. Within the role I was given the opportunity to become a subject-matter expert, implement ideas, create content, present at conferences, and work with cross-departmental and international team members. This opportunity allowed me to quickly gain responsibilities and strengthen my core skills.
Progression is supported at Hanson Wade and after a year with Beacon I was promoted to a research manager. As part of the promotion, I transitioned into the lead researcher on the Adoptive Cell module and oversaw the researchers responsible for the advanced therapy modules. This role allowed me to diversify my scientific knowledge and gain people management skills.
After producing scientific content at Beacon, I became interested in client-facing work, and supporting client needs through the delivery of bespoke qualitative and quantitative reports. Therefore, with the support from Waders across the business I moved to Hanson Wade's Market Intelligence division. I joined Intelligence as a Senior Market Analyst and since I have been exposed to a diverse range of projects which has allowed me to challenge and evolve my skillset, expand my scientific and commercial expertise, take ownership, and contribute my ideas. The nature and impact of the work, coupled with a supportive, friendly, and knowledgeable team has made Hanson Wade somewhere that I am grateful to have my career. I look forward to continue contributing to the scientific field, whilst growing and learning both personally and professionally.
