Main Seminar Room
New Biochemistry Building
In association with the Medical Sciences Divisional Offices and the University of Oxford Careers Service we are hosting a series of talks themed upon career development. This month’s talk will be based around careers in technology transfer.
James Groves graduated from the University of Nottingham with a degree in Neuroscience. At the University of Oxford James completed a Masters degree in Neuroscience and carried out a PhD developing novel platforms for the pharmaco-genetic manipulation of neurons. He continued developing this technology as a postdoc, creating novel Luciferase reporters for investigating the causes and treatment of the neurodegenerative disorder Friedreich’s Ataxia.
James now works for Isis Innovation, working within the technology transfer team to protect the intellectual property of the University of Oxford and help researchers commercialise their ideas and create spin out companies.
After the seminar you can book a one-to-one careers appointment with Dr Claire Conway, Careers Adviser for Researchers. Call the Careers Service reception on 274646 to book.
