Sarah is a graduate of the NHS Management Training Scheme in Wales and started her career in the NHS, working in a number of NHS Trusts, including Great Ormond Street NHS Foundation Trust, before joining Novartis Pharmaceuticals Research as the Head of Operations for a neuroscience drug discovery unit, located on the UCL campus.
