Introducing Sahar Osman
We recently caught up with our latest recruit, Marketing Executive, Sahar Osman, about her academic and professional career to date, and the things she was most looking forward to in her new role at Chromatrap. Find out more about Sahar from her answers below:
What is your academic background?
I did my undergraduate degree in Genetics, followed by an M.res in Genetics, both completed at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. I then moved to Nottingham in 2015 to study my masters in Applied Biotechnology Biopharmaceutical Entrepreneurship (exhale!). This was great as it combined both my love for science and interest in business.
Tell us more about your previous work experience…
As part of my masters I undertook a 3 month internship at a healthcare branding start up based at Medicity, Nottingham. From the launch of a new brand during the internship, I continued to work for the company until the end of April 2017. During the 11 months at the start up I took on the role of Brand and Marketing Manager, managing 2 brands, which was challenging and exciting.
What does your new job involve?
Broadly, my job involves growing the Chromatrap brand by developing and driving digital and commercial activities alongside Chromatrap’s scientific developments. This can range from working in the lab with the products gaining hands-on experience, to creating amazing marketing material for conferences and tradeshows. I will also work alongside the team to provide technical support for the company.
Which part of your job are you most looking forward to, and why?
I am very much looking forward to working with the technical team and having the opportunity to grow the brand. Working close to the team enables me to understand the technology, work alongside its development and translate the experience into marketing.
Brainstorming and looking for new ways to communicate and build brand awareness is something that I also enjoy; thus with a new product on the market, I look forward to the challenges inherent to it. Simply having the opportunity to work in a life science company from a business perspective is what I look forward to the most about my job.
