Paul studied Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, and stayed on at Cambridge to complete a PhD in the Department of Genetics. He carried out post-doctoral research in developmental neurobiology and neuroscience at King's College London and the University of Oxford, and spent two years in the biotech industry. Paul found science communication to be the most rewarding aspect of these roles, and enjoys explaining complex concepts clearly and compellingly.
Since moving into medical communications, Paul has gained substantial experience in health economics and outcomes research, and has developed health technology assessment submissions and global value dossiers as well as traditional medical communications. Paul has worked in a range of disease areas; he has particular expertise in oncology, ophthalmology and neurology but always enjoys learning about new therapy areas!
