Dr Claire Shingler

Business Manager

My mission, through nurturing the BioEscalator community, is to drive a positive impact on the Oxford biomedical innovation ecosystem


Role at the BioEscalator:

  • Operational, commercial and financial management of Oxford’s biomedical science incubator
  • Managing selection process and on-boarding new innovative, high-growth potential companies into the BioEscalator


Following an academic career in chemistry and cancer research, culminating in postdoctoral work in a joint-venture biotech start-up at the University of Edinburgh, Claire’s career has focused on multidisciplinary team management in the biomedical and university sector. Formerly Head of Strategic Intelligence at an Oxford-based pharmaceutical consultancy company, Claire then joined the University of Oxford in 2008, working in research and departmental management in Experimental Medicine and Oncology. Claire took up her role in the BioEscalator as it opened in September 2018.
