BNA Face of the Fortnight: Dawn Farrar

2nd Oct 2023

The BNA Face of the Fortnight is a new initiative, where we want to showcase the breadth, depth, and variety of neuroscience in the UK and abroad.

BNA Face of the Fortnight: Monday 2nd October 2023

Dawn Farrar is the UK Marketing Manager for Miltenyi Biotec. She has an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Bradford and a PhD in Molecular Microbiology (University of Leeds). 

"I am very proud of the links that Miltenyi Biotec has with the BNA. I passionately believe that companies like Miltenyi should be involved not just in providing tools for researchers to carry out their work but should also support and enhance the scientific communities we work with."


Miltenyi Biotec is a leading company in biomedical research and cellular therapy, offering innovative products and services for cell isolation, flow cytometry, molecular analysis, and more.

"Our mission is to advance scientific understanding and medicine by providing solutions for cell and gene therapy and biomedical research. We believe in biomedical science as the strongest driver to change the way we treat cancer, autoimmune diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders."


Each Fortnight, we will also ask our featured individuals for Top Tips that they would give to you if you are looking to get into the neuroscience industry. 

Here's what Dawn has to say:

"Talk to as many people as you can. Find something you are passionate about and don't be afraid to tell people about your passion."
