Susan was a guest on Careers in Discovery, with Tom Froggatt and they explored her journey from classicist to scientist to CEO, the unique challenges still faced by female scientists in academia and biotech, and why resilience & determination are key qualities to develop.
This is just an extract of what she said: “Don’t become a scientist for status, don’t do it impress people, don’t do it to get rich. Only do it if the work itself is something that you find irresistible, because you’ll have to work long hours for little money and no security. You have to have a real passion for it.”
