Jo has more than 17 years of industrial experience as a medicinal chemist for GlaxoWellcome, GlaxoSmithKline, Argenta Discovery (now Charles River), the Cancer Therapeutics CRC and MecRx on an extensive range of targets across several therapeutic areas. In 2013 she co-founded MecRx and oversaw the company raising over $10 million from the MRCF and CSIRO and $345,000 in non-dilutive funding in her capacity as Chief Operating Officer and Director. In addition to fundraising, Jo was responsible for the budget, board reporting, planning and implementation of the science program to meet milestones on budget. Jo managed and negotiated all agreements and ensured MecRx complied with corporate governance requirements. She remains on the MecRx board as an Observer.
