Project summary

Alison completed her PhD in physiology in 1985 at the University of Manchester. Following a career break from 1986 to 1995 to bring up her children, she returned to the research environment as a Career Re-entry Fellow in cell physiology. The opportunities that the Fellowship provided were invaluable, not only in the area of scientific retraining but also in allowing Alison to focus on transferable skills, equipping her for other careers outside science. After four years, she made a change in career direction to enter higher education management – first as a Graduate Administrator, then in various roles including working as the Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences NHS Liaison Officer. She now holds a senior management position as the Head of School Administration in Manchester Medical School, where she is responsible for the oversight of all administration associated with the School.
