Linda Somerville, Company Director at Linfaws Consulting Limited and IMNIS mentor.

I am a cellular biologist by training, but now work as a consultant in the innovation area for the UK Govt Innovation Agency (Innovate UK). I monitor risky R&D projects where the can be a range of partners, SMEs, large companies and academia. I support as well as monitor the project participants. My background over the years has enabled me to understand the complex issues scientists have in entering the commercial field.
