“New therapies are prohibitively expensive and healthcare systems the world over are straining to cope with demand. We need a paradigm-shift to make our global healthcare systems sustainable – changes to R&D, regulation, health economics, data management and culture. CASMI is here to make that innovation happen”
Megan has a wealth of experience in innovation ecosystems, strategy, change management and science commercialisation, with a particular focus on the culture and structures that facilitate effective innovation. She particularly values working across traditional institutional and disciplinary boundaries and strongly supports the multi-disciplinary nature of CASMI’s team.
Megan has a degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge as a member of St John’s College, and a range of other qualifications in economics, science communication and business. Her professional career has spanned a range of high-tech sectors including energy, transportation, cryogenics, space, healthcare technologies and medical devices. She has a particular interest in healthcare and has worked with blue-chip companies in this sector such as Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, Coloplast and GE Healthcare as well as being the founder and leader of the Harwell Healthcare Technologies Group.
