Sales opportunities in biotech firms
With the changes in laboratory techniques affecting many disciplines, this is a short introduction to the variety of sales-based careers available in the UK biotechnology sector. The talk incorporates different companies, changing market trends and products and my own 'out of laboratory' experience of working in the biotech commercial world. Currently I work for Silicon Genetics, an American company with a small European operation based in the UK. I am their UK Regional Sales Manager. The company develops bioinformatics software that bridges the gap between IT, Genomics, Proteomics and Statistics. I studied Cell and Molecular Biology at Oxford Brookes University and have been working in biotechnology sales for seven years.
