He has successfully spun out a company from Exeter University to commercialise this research, and is developing a portfolio of products.





He is a massive advocate for doctors to become involved in alternative clinical interests, and wants to highlight that there is more to medicine than the clinical work. His one-day workshop will include guidance for budding entrepreneurs and talks from clinicians (some quite famous!) who have developed their own products, businesses and services while balancing clinical work.
