What implication do mindsets and motivations have on the management team and the business itself? How does a team form the skills to complement their vision to tackle the appropriateness of business models, regulatory challenges, the need for deep research pockets, sales to large corporates and other bureaucracies and more generally manage teams of very bright people?

The second session of the new Enterprise Tuesday series includes contributions by Professor Sabine Bahn, PhD, Director, The Cambridge Centre for Neuropsychiatric Research; and Dr Shaun Fitzgerald, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Breathing Buildings.

Professor Sabine Bahn is a practising psychiatrist, Chair in Neurotechnology and Director of the Cambridge Centre for Neuropsychiatric Research at Cambridge University and Chair in Translational Neuropsychiatry at the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, NL. Her main research interests are to understand the molecular basis of neuropsychiatric disorders, with a focus on schizophrenia and mood disorders. Professor Bahn has published numerous articles in high impact journals over the last years. In 2005, she co-founded Psynova Neurotech Ltd., which, together with Rules Based Medicine (RBM) has launched the first blood test aiding in the early diagnosis of Schizophrenia. In 2011 Psynova Neurotech and RBM have been acquired by Myriad Genetics, a NASDAQ listed company. Professor Bahn continues to be director and chief scientific officer for Psynova Neurotech as well as Senior Medical Director for Neuropsychiatric Disorders for Myriad RBM and Myriad Genetics.

Shaun Fitzgerald studied engineering at Cambridge University, where he completed his undergraduate studies as well as his doctoral and post-doctoral work. He then joined the faculty at Stanford University where he led the Geothermal Research Programme for two years. For the next 5 years he worked with Bain & Company as a strategy consultant based in London but working on assignment in the USA and across Europe. In 2001 he returned to Cambridge University to embark on a natural ventilation research programme funded by BP. He co-founded Breathing Buildings in 2006, which is now the UK’s leading natural ventilation company. He still teaches and supervises 4th year undergraduate research projects in natural ventilation at Cambridge University.
