“I have been working with Nicki Shepherd for approximately 7 years on projects to develop improved foot-and-mouth disease vaccines for use in countries with endemic disease. During this time Nicki has provided advice, guidance and help that have been key to the success of the programme of work.  In particular, it helped having access to someone with extensive knowledge of commercialisation when negotiating with our commercial partner.”
