Director of EnterpriseTECH and EnterpriseWOMEN

Bio

Dr Rebecca Myers ARCS joined the Entrepreneurship Centre in 2017 having been a scientific researcher in organic chemistry for the past 15 years. She holds a PhD in Organic Chemistry from the University of Cambridge and is a chemistry graduate of Imperial College, London. She was the Associate Director of the Cambridge-Cancer Research UK Graduate Training Programme in Medicinal Chemistry and a Senior Research Associate in the research group of Professor Steven V. Ley CBE FRS – both at the Department of Chemistry at Cambridge.

Her research experience has covered many areas of chemistry, mostly at the medicinal chemistry interface, and particularly in cancer research. In recent years her contributions have helped underpin pioneering developments in flow chemistry and process automation which has helped secure over £10m worth of research council grants. She has published, with others, numerous research articles, reviews and book chapters in these areas.

Rebecca brings a strong understanding of the needs of the scientists and researchers in the University environment, and her experience will add valuable know-how to our efforts to further engage with the wider University and Cambridge ecosystem.

Hannah Tranter

Hannah Tranter

EnterpriseTECH & EnterpriseWOMEN Programme Administrator

Bio

Hannah has worked at the interface of business and education since 2014, engaging with corporations to improve environmental awareness and business practices. She previously worked as Project Manager at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) to help develop and build the business case for sustainability, and particularly for the sustainable management of natural resources including water, soil and biodiversity. While at CISL, Hannah co-authored several reports on the importance of securing natural capital to ensuring resilient supply chains, notably within the cotton, forestry and dairy industries.

Hannah's work focused on translating rigorous scientific research to effectively inform business decisions. As part of this, Hannah facilitated conversations between companies and researchers to render research more applicable and practical. During this time, Hannah developed an enthusiasm for engaging business practitioners; she recognises the need to explore creative and varied approaches if we are to implement novel ideas and solutions to some of today's most pressing environmental and social issues.
