About the Speaker:

A biotechnology entrepreneur and immunologist by training, Deborah has over two decades of experience in anti-infective drug discovery research and development. Deborah studied at University College London and then worked in postdoctoral positions in internationally acclaimed laboratories in San Diego and Ghent before moving to Aberdeen (to the Rowett Research Institute, now part of the University of Aberdeen) where she founded NovaBiotics in 2004.

The business has since become a leading global biotechnology business, developing a portfolio of first-in-class anti-infective therapies addressing the urgent, unmet need for safe and effective antimicrobials including Nylexa for COVID-19. NovaBiotics is on the front line of the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The Masterclass is organised by the Centre for Entrepreneurship.
