Southampton University in the UK provided both general training in obstetrics and gynaecology and later specialist infertility experience while working on the early in vitro fertilization programme. After completing specialist training in reproductive medicine in Sheffield University under Professor Ian Cooke, in depth clinical and academic experience was gained in the University of Bristol initially working with the late Professor Michael Hull. Having established an international reputation in the field of reproductive medicine, an opportunity presented to join Merck Serono International increasingly focused on innovative clinical research. Although working in the Pharmaceutical industry, it has been possible to maintain broad academic recognition for instance by multiple presentations and a visiting professorship in the University of Warwick, UK. Following the switch to Pharma a series of excellent opportunities made it possible to gain wide experience leading to the current position of head of global medical affairs.
