Laura Williams

Discovery Biology Technology Lead

Having developed a career in several lab-based roles across pharma R&D, Laura now focuses on increasing productivity through technology. Originally trained as a Pharmacologist, her research career took her from safety & efficacy pharmacology, to DMPK, to HTS, to mechanistic enzymology and finally to product development.  For the last 7 years, Laura has worked across R&D to introduce disruptive transformations.   She finds it vital to ask- what scientific questions we are trying to answer? – then applying technology to accelerate finding those answers.   Outside of work, she loves to study strategy and the application of technology by following Formula 1 motor-racing.
