Collaboration is at the heart of scientific progress. By working together, we can accelerate discovery. At STEMCELL Technologies, we believe that biotech can be an important partner for advancing science through building relationships that support scientific training, discovery, and innovation. At the joint American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) and European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) 2019 meeting in Washington, DC, Drs. Jenna Moccia and Nicole Quinn from STEMCELL hosted a conversation on "Industry as a Partner for Advancing Science".
Watch the recording to learn:
How biotech can serve as a platform for communicating science—within and outside the scientific community.
How commercialization can advance your discovery!
How biotech can support the adoption of cutting-edge technologies.
Jenna Moccia, PhD
Senior Manager, Scientific Marketing
Jenna Moccia completed a PhD in biochemistry in her home province of British Columbia, Canada. During her PhD research, Jenna also pursued opportunities beyond the traditional academic career path to build science communications skills, which included hosting a weekly radio show and repeated guest podcast appearances. Upon completing her PhD, Jenna started working at STEMCELL Technologies in a product marketing role—learning the marketing ropes in industry. From there, she moved into managing the company’s fledgling organoid product portfolio and after five years, returned to a marketing function to head up the international team responsible for product marketing strategy and content development. Jenna is motivated to explore the quickly evolving communication landscape in the life sciences industry, and she strives to empower scientists to choose tools and approaches that further their research aims.
Nicole Quinn, PhD
Associate Director, Scientific Communications
Nicole Quinn completed an MSc in cancer biology, then spent a year working as a laboratory technician in a high-throughput DNA sequencing lab before returning to graduate school. After finishing her PhD in genomics, and having discovered that her love for science lay more in communicating than doing research, Nicole left the bench to pursue a career in science communication. She took on the task of expanding the existing e-newsletter service at STEMCELL Technologies into a comprehensive, globally-accessible science communication program including more than 20 weekly field-specific newsletters, a podcast, several community-focused websites, and almost 40 different social media channels. Nicole is passionate about increasing accessibility to science and exploring new platforms to foster connection, collaboration, and knowledge-sharing within the scientific community. In this panel, Nicole explores the role that industry can play in this mission.
