David Mendes, PhD
Since completing my PhD in cell biology at the university of Coimbra, based on my research at McGill University, I’ve spent the past 9 years building my career in the medical communication and linguistic services industry. After my PhD, I worked for 4 years as a Medical Writer in a medical communication agency, perfecting my writing skills and creating content for pharmaceutical sales training materials covering a wide range of therapeutic areas. I have since started my own business offering linguistic services – translation, revision, and connected services – in the biomedical domain. Now a father of two, I am interested in exploring the different ways people have juggled professional and personal life after completing their MSc or their PhD.
