Dr. Philip Hedge

Philip Hedge (PhD) is a bioscientist with 6 years of academic research, 24 years of experience of cancer drug discovery at AstraZeneca (AZ) and 4 years as an independent consultant to Biotech. Philip has conducted and led research across all phases of research, including new target discovery, lead generation, lead optimisation and preclinical support for compounds in clinical development.  In his 10 years as Director of Cancer Bioscience he led a group of more than 200 bioscientists in delivering the preclinical and translational science in support of the AZ Oncology portfolio. As a project leader he has led many cross functional drug discovery projects, and many collaborations with academia or Biotech. His strategic vision and drive brought many new technological and scientific innovations into the AZ organisation. He also led cross therapeutic area bioscientist development and science/technology sharing.

Prof. Neville Ford

Professor Neville Ford took his MA (Oxon) in 1983, an MSc (from Manchester in 1986) and a PhD in 1991 from Liverpool. He was invited to become a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications for services to Mathematics. He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and is the founder and director of the University of Chester Mathematical Sciences Research Group. He supervises PhD students and conducts his own research, in collaboration with members of the Chester group and with researchers elsewhere in Europe. His research interests combine theory, computational simulations and modelling applications of functional differential equations in materials science, in the environmental sciences, in the biosciences, and in medicine. He has experience in mathematical analysis of immunologic cell
interactions

Prof. Julie Gough

Professor Julie Gough is a cell biologist whose research interests are in tissue engineering of mechanically sensitive connective tissues such as bone, cartilage, skeletal muscle and the intervertebral disc. Her research includes controlling cell responses at the cell-biomaterial interface by engineering defined surfaces. This includes analysis and control of cells such as osteoblasts, chondrocytes, fibroblasts, keratinocytes, myoblasts and macrophages on a variety of materials and scaffolds. Her research also involves development of scaffolds for tissue repair such as novel hydrogels and various porous and fibrous materials.

She has published over 70 papers and collaborates widely within academia and industries such as Johnson and Johnson and Smith and Nephew.

Dr. Lloyd Pane

Lloyd Pane (PhD) is Executive Vice President Anti-infective Operations at Evotec. Prior to co-founding Euprotec, now Evotec, he spent nearly 20 years in the biopharmaceutical and CRO sectors where he directed a number of drug discovery programmes in the infectious disease, oncology and inflammation therapeutic areas.
