Creating confident communicators – Rowan Grant Twitter: @RowanHGrant; LinkedIn: Rowan Grant As a communications professional, I put what I preach into practice. Alongside the Twitter accounts I help to run for Translate and the Medical Technologies IKC, I also have a personal account. I follow other organisations and other relevant individuals, many of them medtech researchers. […]
Translate in Action 2018 reports on activities and achievements from Translate in its third year, with features from the programme team and first person accounts on progressing medical technologies and developing innovation skills.
As both a PhD student and a post-doc researcher, I was never shy about taking up any training opportunities that were offered to me – and that’s the reason I’m working in medtech today. My background is in chemistry, and my interest in finding applications for my research led me first to biomaterials, then to biomedical engineering and finally to medtech. All these moves were spurred on by training I took part in.
