NEW YEAR, NEW FACES, NEW VENTURES
Vitaccess starts 2019 with a bang, welcoming two newcomers to make our team bigger and better, preparing for upcoming app launches internationally and attending the semi-finals of the TechNation awards.
As our MyRealWorld platform is collecting more and more data, our technology team grows exponentially. After the arrival of Emily Baker as a business analyst at the end of last year, we welcome onboard Lucinda Camidge aka Lucie, who takes on the role of health data analyst.
After working for Lhasa Limited’s Pharmacokinetic Research team on data sharing projects and internal research for software platforms, Lucie is excited to get involved in data, “with a more human touch!” She holds a BSc in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Hull and an MPH, Master of Public Health, from the University of Sheffield. You can read her full profile here.
In early 2019, we’ll see our CMT&Me app created for patients living with rare disease Charcot Marie Tooth being rolled out in France, Germany, Italy and Spain. The localisation work required to expand to these countries is a big task and the translations team is thrilled to welcome Anna Richards as localisation project manager. With over five years’ experience in translation and localisation, Anna’s skills include the coordination, production and quality analysis of clinical translations destined for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries. She holds an MA in Translation from Cardiff University. Her full profile is available here.
New HEOR and MA projects are keeping the team busy, as we also prepare publications for industry events in 2019. The digital team has new, large-scale international digital projects in the pipeline, in new indications. Watch this space, as 2019 promises to be another fast-going, fast-growing year!
Speaking of growth, we are thrilled to be semi-finalists of the TechNation Rising Stars awards. Being recognised as one of the UK’s most exciting tech startups and named as one of the top 3 tech startups in the SouthEast is a testament to the quality and rigour of the ground-breaking work we are doing. Mark and Helen will be heading to Manchester next week to pitch to an impressive panel of judges at the event and are looking forward to meeting experts in scale-up ventures. It will also be fascinating to meet with like-minded entrepreneurs and share experiences.
