It’s been a month full of change for our Findacure team!

Firstly, we are delighted to announce Mary Rose Roberts, previously our Events Manager, is now Findacure’s Head of Operations. Mary Rose now leads on the strategy and development of our Empowerment programme, as well as continuing production of our annual Drug Repurposing Conference and the Rare Disease Showcase Series.

We are also excited to welcome two new members to our team!
