Dr Priya Revathikumar is an Indian researcher with a pharmaceutical technology background that moved to Sweden in 2010 to do a Master’s project at Karolinska Institutet. Her interest for immunology and the brain led her to a PhD in Medical Sciences, which she finished in May last year.

Today, Priya works as a Failure Investigation Engineer at the molecular diagnostics company Cepheid AB.

In this episode, she shares her story on how she turned obstacles into opportunities while making the transition from academia to industry as well as some do’s and don’ts to consider along that path.

"There are a lot of people out there who really are willing to help people from academia to make the transition to industry. Reach out to these people and ask for feedback."

- Dr. Priya Revathikumar, Cepheid AB, Sweden
