Careers after a PhD/Postdoc: ECR event
At Proteintech, we understand that often Early Career Researchers are unsure about what career path to take.
For this ECR event, we are hosting 5 scientists who work in academia and industry but with highly varied roles. Hear from them about their personal career journey and what their current job entails.

Keynote: Dr Lisa Bouchier-Hayes, Associate Professor at Baylor College of Medicine, US.
Dr James Quinn – Translational Scientist II at Eisai US
Dr Harry Potter – Lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire, UK.
Dr Vrutant Shah - Research Associate II at Methodist Research Institute, Texas, US.
Dr Rwik Sen - Field Application Scientist at Active Motif, California, US.

This webinar will include:
- In depth Q&A with the speakers
- Certificate of attendance
- Free samples

This event is run in collaboration with Active Motif, the global leader for epigenetic research reagents.

Mar 28, 2023 03:00 PM in London

* Required information


Dr Lisa Bouchier-Hayes
Associate Professor @Baylor College of Medicine
Dr. Lisa Bouchier-Hayes is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine. A native of Ireland, she was awarded her Ph.D. from the Department of Genetics at Trinity College, Dublin and completed post-doctoral fellowships in molecular mechanisms of apoptosis at La Jolla Institute in San Diego and at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. In her (non-existent) “spare time,” Dr. Bouchier-Hayes has created a robust workshop program to propel junior investigators forward and support all faculty in their journeys toward discovery.
Dr James Quinn
Translational Scientist II @Eisai USA
James Quinn is a translational scientist working in neurology at the Guided Genetics for Dementia Discovery (G2D2) site at Eisai in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He undertook his PhD at the University of Manchester studying the role of tau in Alzheimer’s disease before moving to Massachusetts in the US to undertake his postdoc at the Alzheimer’s Clinical & Translational Research Unit (ACTRU) at Massachusetts General Hospital. His postdoc involved studying the role of neuropeptides in Alzheimer’s disease and TDP-43 in ALS. His research has taken him around the world and recently facilitated his move from Academia into Industry.
Dr Harry Potter
Lecturer in Medical Sciences @University of Central Lancashire, UK
I am a teaching-focussed Lecturer in Medical Sciences at the University of Central Lancashire, Burnley campus. My research interests are the neuro-immune developmental programming of neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, particularly in the context of adverse prenatal environments. I am also heavily involved in student pastoral care and career development, as well as pedagogical research into modern assessment strategies
Dr Vrutant Shah
Research Associate II @Methodist Research Institute
Vrutant Shah did his Ph.D. in cell and molecular biology at University of Houston under the mentorship of Dr. Amy Sater where he explored the gene regulatory network and miRNA-mRNA regulation in fate specification of ectoderm. For postdoctoral training, he joined Dr. Michelle Barton’s lab at M D Anderson Cancer Center where he developed a pre-clinical mouse model for Metaplastic Breast Cancer, a rare and aggressive subclass of TNBC, and determined therapeutic targets that can be explored further in clinic. Currently, he is working as a Research Associate II at Methodist Research Institute under Dr. Kristopher Brannan and developing mRNA techniques to target Metaplastic Breast Cancer cells using RNA editing enzymes.
Dr Rwik Sen
Field Application Scientist @Active Motif
As a field application scientist, I educate researchers at academia and industry on Active Motif's technology, develop new applications, build alliances, and bring in revenue. My training at Southern Illinois University and the University of Colorado, an inclusive group of mentors, and experiences with mentoring, teaching, peer-reviewing, communication, contribute to this ever-evolving role.
