I have a strong interest in translating ideas from the research laboratory into practical tools and methods. I was the Founder and Director of Oswel Research Products, the first UK supplier of high-quality oligonucleotides analogues and DNA sequencing services. Oswel used cutting edge technology to provide an essential service to chemists and biologists for over a decade. We were able to use our novel methods to synthesise oligonucleotides and analogues for research scientists throughout the world.
I also co-founded two other companies, ATDBio and Primer Design. All three companies were commercially successful, and were eventually acquired by international Biotech companies. ATDBio and Primer design were involved in developing and producing diagnostic tools for COVID-19.
