North East Innovation Lab appoints commercial business manager
Dr Caroline Wilson, former principal scientist at the North East Innovation Lab, has been appointed to the role of commercial business manager.
Caroline is one of the founding members of the lab team. For the last two and a half years Caroline has led a range of projects to evaluate and assess new technologies and diagnostics.
In her new role, Caroline will continue to work closely with the lab’s team of scientists but in a different guise, leading the commercial and business development activities, including managing new enquiries and converting leads into costed, contracted projects.
“I’m delighted to be appointed to my new role. It’s exciting and fulfilling to work in such a fast-paced environment, devising methodologies and tests to help our clients bring their diagnostic products to market.
“Each project is unique and we’re in a perfect position to provide tailored evaluation and validation, often using clinical samples held on our biobank, to inform development and launch into mainstream use, making a huge difference to patients.
“I’m looking forward to playing a key role in supporting the lab’s continued growth through expanding our services and commercial activity.”
