Dr Karen Smith Dr Karen Smith

I instigate new and develop existing opportunities for partnerships with private, public and third sector organisations based on the world-leading research conducted in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, and the Schools of Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Pharmacy. I work closely with academics to promote key research capabilities through knowledge exchange, impact, enterprise and engagement.

Following several years in management consultancy with EY and IMS Health I worked at the University of Cambridge in several roles including Head of the Corporate Liaison Office and Executive Director of the Cambridge Computational Biology Institute and at UCL as Director of Bioprocess Leadership.

I gained extensive experience in developing strategic, high-value relationships with stakeholders including companies of all sizes, academic institutions, government bodies, knowledge transfer networks, professional institutions and sponsors.

I hold several degrees including two Master's degrees and a PhD from Emmanuel College, Cambridge (Neuroanatomy).
