ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Director, Founder & Neuroscientist
DR ANNA PATRICIA MCLAUGHLIN
Anna founded Sci-translate in April 2021, while completing her PhD in Neuroscience & Psychology at King’s College London, and was featured in the Financial Times for her consulting work within the same month of founding the company.
Anna has authored and co-authored multiple academic papers in prestigious neuroscience and psychiatry journals and published a book chapter with Oxford University Press. She also holds an MSc in Psychiatric Research and a BSc in Psychological Science. Her scientific field of study focused on the intersection between immunology, mental health and metabolism.
Before studying neuroscience, Anna originally studied graphic design and illustration, which inspired her passion for merging science with art. She founded Sci-translate to promote multidisciplinary collaboration between science and the arts and believes that learning about science should be exciting, accessible and inclusive for everyone.
AWARDS & ACHIEVEMENTS
Anna was awarded a fully-funded studentship by the National Institute of Health Research Biomedical Research Centre to complete her PhD at King’s College London. She received the Public Communication Prize from the British Association of Psychopharmacology, and the Innovation Prize for her MSc thesis from King’s College London. She also collaborated on an exhibition with King’s College London that won the Scientific American’s Art of Neuroscience prize.
