Dr Alec McLean


My career has spanned academia and drug development in the pharmaceutical industry, including being a CEO for a Scottish biotech company. It was during the latter of these that I became aware of Medical Research Scotland and the unique benefits that it provides to PhD students, academia and industry partners in their approach to bringing all of these shareholders together to advance healthcare in Scotland – and further abroad. This motivated me to join the Board of Trustees and assist it with the charity’s s objectives.
