Dr Maria Adams
I am Senior Research Manager at the Wellcome Trust-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science at the University of Cambridge. The institute is focused on basic and translational research relevant to the understanding, prevention and treatment of diabetes, obesity and other related endocrine and metabolic disorders. Among other things, I support the development of major funding applications, strategic relationships and knowledge transfer activities. I also lead on public engagement and would like to develop fresh activities and events in this area.
Before joining the IMS I spent several years working in research management, policy and dissemination in the medical research charity sector, and in publishing.
