Claire Wilmington

After graduating with a B.Sc. degree in biomedical science, Claire started her career in the field of intellectual property. While interning at the European Patent Office, she became particularly interested in the implications that patent protection has on patient access to medicines and healthcare. This subsequently led her to work for the Medicines Patent Pool, a non-profit organisation that helps improve access to medicines for patients in developing countries. To further her education, Claire completed her M.Sc. degree in public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. At the end of her master studies, she joined the Decision Science team at the French Institute for Health and Medical Science Research (INSERM), where she conducted cost-effectiveness analysis of providing innovative treatment to patients with HCV related cirrhosis. More recently, Claire worked as an analyst for the information company IHS Markit in the life sciences sector.
