Johannes Wolff is a PhD student at the Institute for Manufacturing, University of Cambridge where he researches how innovative firms in emerging technologies navigate periods of market and financial adversity. His industry focus is on the biopharma field, specifically on gene therapy.
Johannes started his academic journey in biomedicine with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Molecular Biology, with extensive experience working in labs in Germany and the US. Out of interest for the translational process of bringing medical innovation to the market and ultimately to patients, he complemented his research background with a second Master’s in Drug Discovery and Pharma Management at UCL.
During his time in Cambridge, Johannes has had a keen interest in the process of accelerating innovation and the translation of basic science into a market reality. He has gathered some project level experience during two projects with i-Teams and during multiple projects at the Cambridge Consulting Network, where he currently serves as Vice President. Further, Johannes has recently founded a start-up in the AgriTech sector, where he hopefully will be able to put his PhD research to good use. Based on these experiences and insights, he will support and accompany the i-Teams teams in their project work.
