- Biomedical Science and Neuroscience to Medical Communications
Name ( pronouns) : Dr Abigail Otchere (she/her) Course/ job: Medical communications manager/medical writer A levels/ equivalent :Maths, biology, chemistry, drama Undergrad and post grad degrees BSc biomedical science MSc neuroscience PhD biomedical science What is your favourite science fact? It has to be fruit fly (Drosophila) related as that’s the model organism I used in my PhD: when male fruit flies get rejected by females during mating they turn to alcohol! - If they are presented with food soaked in alcohol or with no alcohol, rejected flies are 4 times more likely to drown their sorrows with alcohol (similar to humans) Journey in 3 words : Testing, varied, unexpected Briefly describe your current role Currently I am a medical communications manager/medical writer. I work for a global medical communications who are basically the middle person between (our clients) pharma companies and healthcare professionals. I work in events, so from the planning to the kick-off meeting to the running of the event. One of the biggest perks of the role is attending events you assisted to plan, sometimes they are held in beautiful venues and countries. We also create medical education materials for healthcare professionals, such as slide decks to educate doctors on treatments for a particular disease or testing methods currently used in clinics or currently in clinical trials. What motivated you to pursue a career in science ? I loved science in secondary school and was also top in my science class - which can’t be said about my other subjects. I loved learning about the human body and how relatable science is - everyone has a loved one who has been affected by old age or ill health, for me science has also been about finding solutions to people’s real life problems. My biggest motivator was my science teacher, she was also a black woman and she encouraged me that I could do anything and should push myself to achieve. She also made science so fun and easy to retain information. Before Doing a PhD you worked in clinical trials, what interested you in working in that field? I fell into clinical trials by accident, I was looking for a lab role once I completed my masters. I applied to work in a lab for a CRO ( Contract Research Organisation) who specialise in flu/virology studies. I got the job but the company didn’t reply to me for 3 months after I accepted the job role. Eventually they sent my start date but not for a lab job but as a data associate and said there was scope for me to move around the company and eventually end up in the lab. I remained on the data team for just over year! What interested me about clinical trials was working on new drugs that could potentially come to market. I realised I loved research and wanted to do more independent research which a PhD offers. Your PhD journey has been quite unique - What was the deciding point in moving from clinical trials to full-time research? After almost 2 years of working in clinical trials, I realised I loved research and wanted to do more independent research which a PhD offers. I also noticed everyone who led a clinical trial had a PhD and soon realised if I wanted to get to the top and run my own trials, a PhD was necessary. I also missed the lab - I had spent two years at a computer desk! What advice would you give someone wanting to apply for a PhD coming from a full-time job. Don’t allow inner doubts to stop you from applying. A PhD is a learning ground so they don’t expect you to be an expert before you start, you will receive training on everything. Also your working experience is an advantage, even if it’s not directly lab work. There are skills you learn at work that are useful for a PhD such as time management, presentation and working to tight deadlines. Thirdly, don’t just apply for any PhD. Make sure it’s something you are passionate about. A PhD is not like a 9-5, it becomes a lifestyle, this topic is all you think about for 3/4 years. It’s only your passion and motivation that will keep you through the challenging times What excited you the most about your PhD research and have you been able to share that knowledge to the wider general community ? I used fruit flies as a model to study ageing and I was so fascinated the range of things you could test in these tiny organisms such as their memory and measure things like fat and dissect their guts! I was also excited to find that the mutation (in a group of receptors called metabotropic glutamate receptors) I was studying extended lifespan in female flies and not males. I further found out using RNA sequencing, that the females had stress protective genes and were more resistant to starvation and oxidative stress conditions. During my PhD I was fortunate to go to international conferences and other UK universities to speak about my findings. Since completing, I love being able to chip in what I found during my PhD to non-scientists like in the most random places (a friend’s birthday or to someone on a plane!) Coming from a PhD, I was used to working on my own project or independent working. But I had to adapt to team working for my current role. What is a typical day like for you and which skills do you enjoy using the most and which ones have you needed to learn and work on to suit the role? I work mostly from home although we have a office close-by. My days consist of meetings with my internal team or clients, replying to emails, working on slide presentations for symposium at scientific conferences or brainstorming ideas with the team. I enjoy using my communication skills which I blend with my scientific expertise and also the ability to learn new topics fast. Coming from a PhD, I was used to working on my own project or independent working. But I had to adapt to team working for my current role. Sometimes I’m required to work as a team to complete a slide deck for example or brainstorm ideas towards the program of the conference. Also you need to have great attention to detail as our clients are paying for a service and your work needs to reflect the company’s image/branding- this I work on every day, triple checking my work I send to clients and making sure I’m up to date the company’s house-style. How do you stay motivated ? especially after completing a PhD during the pandemic, how did you deal with the uncertainty and what advise would you pass on? I recently read that just 1% of the world’s population have a PhD! Not only that but a PhD graduate has a 98% employment rate, it gives me confidence knowing this especially when dealing with imposter syndrome. I also remember if I could complete a PhD during a pandemic I can do anything, I basically use the struggle as a constant reminder of what I can achieve. Things will work out, that’s the advice I can give, I didn’t get a job straight after my PhD, it took me 4 months after my PhD viva. But in that 4 months, I discovered medical communications as a career, gained invaluable interview experience and had much needed rest! A postdoc is generally a short-term research position that provides further training in a particular field, and for individuals planning research careers in academia, government, or industry, the postdoc years can be an opportunity to develop independence, hone technical skills, and focus research interests Having "left academia" , what were the deciding factors in not choosing a Postdoc? I spent an extra year because of the pandemic on my PhD, at the end of it I was ready for something new. The lab can be a lonely place, especially with the work I was doing and I was ready to explore some my other skills I enjoyed during my degree such as communication. I considered applying for for postdocs upon finishing but I felt like I would only do a postdoc if I wanted to stay in academia and research in the long term. I’ll never say never to going back to academia but at the time of choosing jobs the thought of a postdoc felt like a ‘second PhD’ and was honestly that didn’t appeal to me at the time. Other factors included the contract length, postdocs are on a fixed term contract basis and some are not very long. I wanted a job which was more permanent so that was one of my biggest deciding factors. When considering your career path, how much has your potential salary affected your decision? To be honest, salary has not been my driving force when it comes to my career choices. At the very start of my career I learnt it’s okay to start from somewhere and work you way up especially when you don’t have experience. Having said that I have refused jobs in the past where the pay didn’t make sense, in terms of the work load and responsibilities and how much they were willing to pay also weighed against career development prospects. When I completed my PhD especially when I was trying to move into medical communications, some companies were offering lower starting salaries than if I was in a lab role because I had no communications experience but I knew my value as a PhD graduate and didn’t go for those. I had my salary range and was very strict on this. What is a typical week like for you? Would you describe your role as varied or routine and how does that tie into your personality? Very varied, I usually work towards one project/event at a time. I work with different client contacts and on different disease therapies. For example one week I could be working on lung cancer, working with a graphic designer and project manager to design the symposium invitation. The next week I could be presenting the main clinical data from recent blood cancer trials, in a slide deck. I like how it is varied because I like a challenge, I like new tasks and I like learning about new disease areas/treatment options. It is important to point out, working in medical communications there are quiet periods and then very hectic, crazy busy periods. This is usually between events. I enjoy the quiet times because when it gets busy, it requires working to tight deadlines and sometimes working longer hours especially when there are last minute changes to slides or even changes to the speaker. I also think this ties into my personality well because sometimes I can talk for days but other times I like my own company. How do you describe yourself outside of science ? I would say I can be dramatic, I am creative (I love writing) and tend to think a lot. I also love looking good, and travelling to new places How do you feel careers in your field have evolved / where are they heading to? Especially after finding out the host of careers outside of academia after your PhD? I think jobs are going to require more skills than just scientific knowledge. For instance, creativity. My current role involves working with graphic designers to design materials for symposia, skills I didn’t know it required. Some of these skills I developed during my PhD when making my own presentations for conferences or making research posters. I think this opens new job opportunities, especially in job areas you never knew a scientist would be needed. In addition I believe things are going to become more digital - a prime example is AI in healthcare, I never thought I will sit in a meeting and be hearing about the metaverse but has become the norm! With the lack of career guidance out there, where do you think universities are getting it wrong? Many graduates are leaving university not knowing what to do with their degree. This is especially so for graduates that don’t won’t to take the typical/traditional career path e.g a biomedical science graduate that doesn’t want to go on to study medicine or work as a biomedical scientist. Along with teaching content, I think universities need to educate on the different careers, invite more companies to visit and give students a taste of the real world especially those who don’t complete an industry placement. I also believe the problem starts very early on, before we get into uni, we are not exposed to many careers, and will hope schools will start introducing careers before year 10. You run a science page called @sistemuk. What are the motivations and future goals for the page and what is it like having a real sister in STEM ? It’s been amazing so far. I’ve learnt so much about other careers and have discovered there are so many women that look like me doing amazing things across STEM. We started SiSTEM because we both struggled as black when in our respective fields and a big part of that was because we felt alone. We didn’t want any girls to give up their dreams because they lacked representation. That’s a big goal of our platform to increase representation by showcasing black women in STEM and change the narrative of what a scientist/engineer or doctor looks like. We also went through so many things that if someone told us at the start we wouldn’t have gone through it so we want to share this with our network - and hear such things from others. Having my real sister as a co-founder has been a blessing! From our experiences we wanted to do something to help girls/women in our fields separately but we discovered we could combine our dream and become a force to reckon with! There something special in sisterhood and that’s what we are offering women in STEM - a community. We also don’t look your typical scientist and engineer, we hope that too inspires.

- What does a research technician do?
Technicians are one of the unsung heroes of the science world. Throughout my undergraduate degree I never fully understood the scope of the technician but always appreciated them. Responsible for providing routine and non-routine technical support to researchers by performing a variety of tasks in support of research. The research technician performs tasks in an agriculture or laboratory setting, in the field, or other research settings. Technicians pass on knowledge and information to trainee students and become experts in the skills that keep the lab running. Technicians do all different things and the science Museum exhibit did an amazing job immersing you into the day to day of different roles. Technicians are both generalists and specialists and with the amazing exhibit they are no longer hidden across the range of fields you find them in. The exhibit was an immersive experience, taking you through a range of different roles with a career questionnaire to pair you with your 5 best suited technician roles. To my surprise I was given “ clinical coder” amongst others that led to media careers. The experience got me thinking, why hadn’t I written a post about technicians having been one myself ? What was it like being a technician ? I haven’t been in it for 6 months yet so there is still a lot to learn ! A typical week or month will involve scanning animals, practicing surgery procedures, reading papers, lab meetings and finishing any other training I have to do. TCIM Career Profile: Bsc Medical Physiology to Research Technician Being a technician is such a varying role where you get to form relationships with a range of people. While some technicians can work on a singular project with the main PI ( Principal Investigator) in universities or industry, others are more of an all hands on deck and work between projects. That was my situation and I loved it because it allowed me to understand a range of techniques and gain an interest in so many scientific questions. At the time I started my role, I was unsure if I wanted to do a PhD and that space allowed me to fully understand the research environment which weirdly taught me I liked being a multi-project person and also enjoyed the administrative sides of the role. I wouldn’t have applied for the role if I hadn’t interviewed someone on this very blog who was a scientific officer . This then taught me that the same role had quite a few different job titles. The ways in which you view a technician career can differ based on your preferences. For me , it was an opportunity to engage with science without commitment. The short contracts can often be off putting as they don’t offer stability but it can also set a time frame for understanding “what next” ? Everyone becomes a technician for reasons personal to them but I can say a want for carrying out scientific research is at the core of the role. It is a perfect space to understand where you want to fit in the academic structure. In a nature article the views of various technicians highlight the paths that can be taken and the fulfilling things that can be done. Progression can involve managing the lab in the future or using it as a way to get into a PhD or starting as a technician in industry to open the entire world of Pharmaceutical research and management. TCIM has interviewed a few technicians and while all got through after a masters degree. The technician pathway doesn't have to follow that route. There are apprenticeships that can lead to technician roles in school, laboratories in hospitals, pharmaceutical companies or universities. The National Careers Service and Royal Society of Biology(RSB) have information on the different entry routes and RSB also focuses on further training and more. The life science industry covers a range of scientific disciplines and technician roles will be specialised according to different topics making it quite difficult to pinpoint the exact skills needed. The skills taught at university should complement the common skills used. Because this is such a huge question, TCIM is creating a survey to make it a little easier to understand .

The ability to gain and perfect a range of skills over a short period of time Not ready to commit to wanting to do a PhD and gaining a bit of insight into the academic environment Gaining insight into a particular field Being able to leave your work at the office and not be consumed by the pressure of academia You enjoy science and working on different projects with a range of people You learn skills that can pivot you into other fields within the university or job sector as it heavily overlaps with administrative tasks and working with de Access to university/ organisational resources which can help advance your career What are the downsides Short term contracts: technician contracts in academic institutions can be dependent on the length of the grant funding the project. You may not have full ownership of the project you are working on. Progression as a fully independent researcher will need a PhD Tasks can become repetitive What is a typical day like? Elicia: I am currently employed as a Scientific Officer at the Institute of Cancer Research. I assist in lab-based medical research to investigate a paediatric cancer known as neuroblastoma. Our overall goal is to discover therapeutic targets within neuroblastoma cells, which would lead to drug discovery for the affected patients. Many neuroblastoma patients have a genetic amplification of an oncogene known as MYCN. My colleagues and I attempt to target MYCN and its associated genes/proteins using techniques such as PCR, western blotting, and immunohistochemistry. If targeting these genes/proteins reduces the cancer phenotype, these results can be used for drug development. Seun: A typical day for me is mostly lab-based, growing generated cell lines in culture, and maintaining them in their optimal conditions. I then harvest these cells, running experiments on them to see for example their gene expression dynamics (qPCR analysis), or running western blots. I also do some admin/lab management work, liaising with company representatives, as well as some science communication on social media (@seuninscience) More Questions on the role How did you get into your role and how does it differ from job roles such as "laboratory assistant" ? Elciia : I applied to the Scientific Officer position straight after my Master's course in 2017. I was happy to get the position. I had just finished a Molecular Genetics Master's, which I believed helped me to get into working in cancer genetics (with neuroblastoma research). To be honest, I'd say that my role is a research assistant type role, but with a fancier name haha! I assist with lab work often. I've been privileged to work on the research elements a lot, because of my awesome team who gave me many chances. My role has technical aspects, but also gives me the freedom to think of, and test new hypotheses to investigate neuroblastoma cells. TCIM Career Profile: https://www.thecatalystinme.com/single-post/career-profile-scientific-officer Which parts of your role do you enjoy the most and what are some hard truths you have had to face in the role? Seun: Enjoy the most: Tissue culture- culturing and maintaining the cell line we work with. Most people do not like TC, but I love it. Happy cells = good experimental data! Some hard truth I face in role is regarding the lack of representation of BAME (females especially) in higher roles in academia. Granted, it is not direct to my actual role as an RA, but it is an issue that academia currently suffers from. TCIM: Career Profile https://www.thecatalystinme.com/single-post/biochem-to-research-assistant What's your favourite part of your job? Adama: I get paid to learn ! It was a weird concept to deal with at first. I genuinely enjoy reading papers and thinking ( I say this now because I don’t have loads of pressure on me) but as long as I am learning and challenged it weirdly sparks joy ! I love the fact that no week is the same ! TCIM Career Profile: https://www.thecatalystinme.com/single-post/bsc-medical-physiology-to-research-assistant Similar job titles: Research officer, Scientific Officer , Research technician , Research assistant. What are the most needed skills in the UK life science technician market ? Entry into the techncican world as a life scientist can be quite complicated. For technician roles in schools a professional qualification/ certification vs a degree will be enough in most cases but with the changing landscape of the job market a lot of people have degrees. Technicians in the university setting may even have to opt for masters degrees as many roles require independent research experience where an undergrad research project may not have taught the techniques in enough detail. This is something I don’t personally agree with but it’s just how it is at the moment. If you like the structure of the research technician being a biomedical scientist may also be a good fit in terms of working hours, skills learned and potential flexibility in working hours. Entry level to these roles would be Medical laboratory assistant and roles that are similar Resources How working as a research technician can bolster your scientific career Not your average technician TCIM Career Profiles : All profiles did a masters before their roles as a technician.

- Is my degree a scam? : the bioscience job market needs a change!
The “value” of the degree has changed over the years as the ways to make money increase, and career paths become less linear. In a society where impact or success is measured by monetary value, the changing world makes it even harder for life science graduates whose pathways have never been linear to to feel a real sense of value. The formation of the STEM industry has created a false sense of job security that isn’t translated across all disciplines. In a recent report by the Nuffield Foundation, of STEM graduates only 46% of were employed in highly skilled STEM positions. Even without the report ,this statistic is validated by the online postings of recent graduates who can’t find careers where they can use their degree skills post graduation. As a biological science (BS) graduate this outcome is even worse with the report stating only 32% of BS graduates were working in STEM roles. Having graduated and creating a blog to tackle issues dealing with careers and pathways of life science graduates, I want to discuss the potential reasons in this post : The miscommunication between graduates, universities and employers The awareness of potential career paths The immediate skills gap and the number of places available Navigating the ever changing world The miscommunication between graduates, universities and employers University is a bubble where the support you get is highly dependent on the expertise of your careers service team. While many do a great job at showing the main options available to students, such as : internships, year in industry and graduate schemes. When the student pathway goes off this road, it can become difficult for students to know what to do next. Universities project a false sense of job security and calm onto students leaving them feeling lost post graduation when this doesn’t happen. Having faced the job market, entry level positions ask for a range of things that aren’t easily identifiable from your degree. Not having metric based work is sometimes not valued by employers that want someone essentially “ready to go”with little training. As the number of university degrees increases, what is taught at different institutions can vary greatly and the recruitment process then becomes highly flawed. The famous phrase “ they only take two minutes to look at your CV” will continue to cause chaos and widen that gap of potentially great graduates into roles. As shown by the career profiles there are many routes for life science grads but staying the course or even gaining training of relevant skills seems to happen by chance rather than by design. The awareness of potential career paths TCIM was created almost 5 years ago due to my personal lack of understanding of potential life science careers and options. This is still a problem and even though there seem to be more opportunities available to learn about different pathways, could there be an information overload where students aren't getting balanced opinions to make decisions? As someone that has had multiple interests, finding relevant jobs has been difficult as even searching for one role can lead to job postings that seem so far out of reach. In the simple sense just knowing the appropriate job title to search for can be a game changer for many students. Did you know: A “technician” can be : A research technician, science technician, research associate and scientific officer . For each of these technician roles the job descriptions and responsibilities may slightly differ but where one description at one job posting may be too much for a recent graduate the same title at another institution can be a perfect fit. Universities further that false sense of security with surveys that all graduates gain “employment” after graduation - even though when you look at the data and having interviewed many people for TCIM the steps to finding the “right role” post graduation can take as long as the degree ! "Keep on learning and at first it may seem like it doesn’t lead anywhere but after a few years there will be a massive difference propelling you to further success. It took me about 3 years after leaving university before I realised what career path was best for me. This was mainly due to being a Lab Scientist during those early years and still learning new techniques, but once I figured that out, I was then able to explore how to build on the foundations laid and accelerate my career. " Dami , Head of scientific Business development The immediate skills gap and the number of places In the job market, there seems to be a form of miscommunication between the graduates and employers and a skills gap that isn't being filled by the content being taught. Universities promote transferable skills but identifying employers that understand the value of them is quite difficult. The infantilization of graduates that seem to “know nothing” even having completed degree based training is also a major problem. Employers and universities aren’t communicating enough to address that skills gap. In pathways where there are skill logs such as biomedical sciences, the number of trainee positions available are far below the number of graduates that need them ! In a recent policy lates event by the Royal Society of Biology (RSB) : bioskills of the future were discussed,and the current skills gap needed to maintain and grow the bioscience industry in the UK. The event highlighted the change in workforce demands which is also supported by the Future skills for life science report. The types of skills and needs are changing, we are categorising less and working together more as an industry to have the desired impact. Entrepreneurship through the growth and creation of biotech companies alongside data skills to deal with the large amount of data being processed were fields mentioned. The field of data science, entrepreneurship and bioinformatics is massive. Even with a focus on these new skills the older skills need to be maintained in order to keep robust science and discovery. While computational skills are here to stay, the identification of markers of disease and analysing big data all comes from the generation of quality data that only happens as a direct result of a highly trained and skilled workforce. Some of the event went on to further talk about how we categorise skills and people at an early age not allowing for individual growth based on genuine interest but rather based on university requirements. TCIM profiles have been able to show through the range of A levels done that you don’t have to fully box yourself into the “STEM” world to be successful in the life science field. Being skilled in multiple things and industry opening up to people switching careers and allowing that crossover to bring in new perspectives is currently working really well to lead new discoveries and can only grow in the future. Navigating the changing world “the Cinderella moment where all fields merge and then truly begin to create magic”. - Professor Neri Oxman, Netflix Abstract art of design S2 Where lines become more blurred and fields continue to overlap and exchange technology, the science industry becomes more creative. The outcomes of graduates are only partially dependent on the degree and skills acquired but more dependent on a stable job market and economy. In an ideal world, everyone will have a job that is both fulfilling and financially rewarding to them. In the UK , it couldn’t be clearer with the wave of strikes on pay and workers conditions across industries that things aren’t based on what seems fair but instead a grander scale of things out of the control of a new graduate. To finally answer the question of: is a bioscience degree a scam? : In simple words no, as the degree provides a foundation of knowledge which is what it should. Expanding on that, the job sector needs to change as the current retention rates are not acceptable. Universities need to play a bigger part in ensuring graduates are being taught and provided with experiences valued by employers. With such a vast range of outcomes, I couldn’t tell you what a neuroscientist needs to be successful or an epidemiologist,imaging scientist, AI specialist or more. The opportunities are endless and your degree is what you make of it ! Subscribe to the TCIM newsletter for monthly summaries on life science careers and more here.
