Dr Malcolm Grimshaw - Head of Physical Sciences
Malcolm leads the Physical Sciences team at Cambridge Enterprise, working to help researchers commercialise technologies from across the whole range of the Schools of Physical Sciences and Technology.
The Physical Sciences team is dedicated to providing efficient support to researchers who have a clear idea of their commercial objectives as well as inspiring, developing and supporting plans for those who are taking their first steps towards commercialisation. Over the last five years, the team has doubled the number of licences completed that have high impact potential and has developed a portfolio representative of the breadth of technologies in the University.
Prior to joining Cambridge Enterprise, Malcolm enjoyed 18 years in the cryogenic and vacuum instrumentation industries, initially as an engineer before moving into sales, marketing and new product development.
His scientific background is in physics, with a first degree from the University of Oxford, a PhD from the University of Nottingham and a postdoctoral position at the CENG in Grenoble.
Malcolm joined the Technology Transfer Office of the University, which later became Cambridge Enterprise, in June 2002.
