Clare has two decades of industrial life science experience across a variety of scientific and commercial roles in large pharma and start-ups. He is currently Regional Sales Manager (Head of Europe) at Synthego and in recent years, he has supported scientists in selecting tools and workflows in stem cells and CRISPR applications to help drive the discovery of new treatments. Clare was elected to sit on the General Committee of ELRIG in 2021 to support the organisation’s Networking Work Group. Prior to this, Clare worked as a scientist and lab head in R&D, leading projects to establish cell/genetic models for drug discovery and disease modelling.
Commenting on the appointment, Clare said: “I appreciate the quality of science available through ELRIG; it is free to access and enables us all to grow together. I want to bring a stronger voice on behalf of the vendor by helping them to provide their expertise and share different ways of thinking about science, while continuing to support ELRIG’s events. The more we collaborate with the vendors, the more we can enable the drug discovery community to progress therapeutic candidates through to the clinic.”
