The dynamic Texere team has been hand-picked to deliver you the very best, high impact, scientific and medical information for print and online reading.
Our uniqueness lies in our diversity. Our expert knowledge is gained from our experiences working in the life science, chemical and applied sciences, as well as medical industries.
What unites us in Texere? Our pursuit of excellence and the desire to inform the scientific and medical communities of the latest news and discoveries.
In our endeavours, we are supported by an outstanding board of directors that draws on experience from publishing and other industries.
"I’ve been in publishing for 27 years, with the majority of that time spent in science. Most recently, I was group publisher in Europe for Advanstar where I led the team to its best-ever performance.
Previously, I was Publishing Director at the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Europe’s equivalent of the IEEE. There, in addition to relaunching the organisation’s principle publications, I developed a newsstand science magazine for young readers, and web TV channels.
I was Science magazine’s first employee in Europe and served as Associate Director, responsible for advertising sales."
"Most recently, I was the Business Development Director at a global advertising agency, which had offices in the USA, UK and Germany.
Previously, I was an Associate Director of Science/AAAS, and worked on the launch of the first full-text scientific journal on the web—Science magazine. I co-created the Eppendorf & Science Prize in Neurobiology.
Additionally, I have worked on the development of websites and subsequent marketing for a number of key companies in the life sciences, healthcare and electronics industries."
"I began my publishing career on the sales floor at Trinity Mirror newspapers. Just a few years later, I joined Advanstar, initially working within the pharma and medical markets, I found my true calling in the world of analytical chemistry when I joined LCGC in 2000.
Over the 13 years that followed I held roles from senior sales executive through to associate publisher, and was involved in the inception of successful print and digital products.
As Publishing Director of The Analytical Scientist, I have the opportunity to work with an outstanding team; together we have created a portfolio of innovative products that spark discussion, engage the reader, and generate value for the analytical community."
"I have twenty years of publishing experience working at every level of sales through to senior management with companies such as Guardian Media Group, CBS, Advanstar and most recently Reed Elsevier.
Over that period the most important lesson that I have learnt is that everything starts with the reader. Our goal with The Ophthalmologist is to create a brand that delivers indispensable utility to our readers and provides industry partners with unrivalled market reach and impact.
Our development plan will deliver advanced marketing and communication tools that have never before been made available to this industry."
"I am the owner of educational website Chromedia. I studied analytical chemistry (specializing in mass spectrometry) in the Netherlands and did several years of post-doc work in spectroscopy with Jim Winefordner at the University of Florida, US.
I then became a science teacher and, later, a publisher in chemistry and physics related topics. I strongly support the mission; building online communities is the road to take.
We need to strengthen the quality of analytical chemistry and we need to strengthen our community by sharing know-how but also by sharing our opinions, vision, and view of the future."
"I am a Graphic Designer with over 10 years professional experience. My career began as working for London lifestyle magazine Dazed & Confused, and after several years I moved to Grand Designs Magazine - the accompaniment magazine to the TV series.
After relocating to the North West - I continued working in design, for a classic music publisher - and latterly for Live Nation producing marketing materials for their extensive theatre division.
More recently I set up a Community Interest Company to provide creative support to Third Sector companies based in the North West."
"I completed my studies in medical biochemistry at the University of Leicester, UK, in 1998.
To cut a long story short, I escaped to Tokyo to spend five years working for the largest English language publisher in Japan. Carving out a career in Tokyo changed my outlook forever – when seeing life through such a kaleidoscopic lens, it's hard not to get truly caught up in the moment.
On returning to the UK, after a few false starts with grey, corporate publishers, I was invited into the colourful folds of Texere Publishing, where I am spearheading the editorial development of The Analytical Scientist."
"I have worked in Audience Development for the past 20 years. I spent the first 16 years of my career working for Advanstar Communications, where I became Head of the European Circulation Department.
I was responsible for existing and newly launched BPA-audited magazines, including chromatography, pharma manufacturing, and ophthalmology. For the past four years I worked for Rapid News Communications Group, overseeing the company’s circulation.
I was instrumental in acquiring five BPA audits for magazines aimed at additive manufacturing and 3D printing, plastics and pharma manufacturing."
"I've been working in the print industry for over 25 years starting as a Retoucher with brushes, a bottle of bleach and some dyes. After a few years the revolution arrived and I sat down in front of something called an Apple Macintosh and opened a copy of Photoshop 2.0.
Years later I built my first web site, an all singing, all dancing Flash monstrosity, for the company I worked for. Then it was onto html and tables, xhtml and css.
Before Texere I worked for Rapid News Communications Group as Digital Magazine Manager producing in-browser digital magazines as well as designing and building internal and external web sites."
"Before joining Texere Publishing as Editor of The Ophthalmologist, I worked as a Medical Writer for over seven years, writing for numerous – and mostly German – Pharmaceutical companies.
I have written for many drug brands across Ophthalmic, Orthopaedic and Cardiology therapy areas, producing and reviewing primary and review manuscripts, Congress presentations and posters, and marketing materials. Prior to my adventures in Medical Communications, I was a Wellcome Trust PhD student at the University of Edinburgh where I examined peri- and post-natal mouse brain development, and before that, I was a Pharmacologist
I miss my labcoat, pipette, peristaltic pumps and PCR machine, but I have grown to love my laptop, keyboard, mouse and rotating monitors even more."
"I have worked in scientific publishing for over 10 years, my last role was European Sales Director managing the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical portfolios at a major publishing company. In my career I have created a range of solutions across multiple formats and through this experience I have learnt that regardless of format successful publishing is driven by connecting powerful content to the strongest possible audience.
As Publisher, my aim for of The Medicine Maker is to introduce a new type of publication, one that harmonises life science manufacturing and development services while taking a global view on the relentless evolution within our industry."
"Beginning my career at Trinity Mirror newspapers working on display advertising I moved to Advantsar Communications and began work as a Sales Exec on Pharmaceutical Technology Europe and Pharm Tech Asia Pacific magazines, over the 5 years that followed I was promoted to European Sales Manager of Pharmaceutical Executive.
Following this promotion I decided that it was time to broaden the CV and moved to Reed Elsevier to work on the custom analytical and custom research data side of publishing as a Regional Sales Manager for the award winning publication - Estates Gazette.
The launch of The Pathologist is truly exciting for me, the Texere team and I look forward to showcasing our array of truly unique digital and print products to the wider pathology community."
"After graduating with a pharmacology degree, I began my career in scientific publishing and communications. Now with more than 16 years of experience in this field, my career has seen me heading up editorial and writing teams at Datamonitor, Advanstar and KnowledgePoint360 group.
My past experiences have taught me something very important – that you have to enjoy working with, and have respect for your colleagues. It’s this that drew me to Texere where I now work with old colleagues and new. Though we are a hugely diverse team, we share several things in common – a real desire to work hard to succeed, to be the best at what we do, never to settle for second best, and to have fun while we do it.
I am now honored to serve as Editor of The Pathologist and Editorial Director of Texere Publishing."
"I have worked within the print/graphics industry for over 25 years. Starting out producing labels for champagne, wines and spirits, I then worked in magazine publishing, before moving into the reprographic side of the industry, initially for a gravure cylinder producer and then for 10 years with a global food packaging company.
I returned to magazine publishing in 2010, and have now accepted a new challenge with Texere to utilise my Mac skills for printed products, whilst also expanding my knowledge within the constantly evolving digital environment."
"Making great scientific magazines isn’t just about delivering knowledge and high quality content; it’s also about packaging these in the right words to ensure that someone is truly inspired by a topic. My passion is ensuring that our authors’ expertise is presented as a seamless and enjoyable reading experience, whether in print, in digital or on social media. I’ve spent seven years writing and editing features for scientific and manufacturing publications, and in making this content engaging and accessible without sacrificing its scientific integrity. There is nothing better than a magazine with great content that feels great to read."
"After studying biology at Imperial College London, I got my start in biomedical publishing as a commissioning editor for healthcare journals. I have spent my career covering everything from early-stage research to clinical medicine, so I know how important it is to build bridges between basic and clinical research. As Editor of The Translational Scientist, I help researchers and clinicians share their stories in vibrant and engaging content that reflects their passion and hard work."
"I have an extensive academic background in the life sciences, having studied forensic biology and human medical genetics in my time at Strathclyde and Glasgow Universities. My research, data presentation and bioinformatics skills plus my ‘wet lab’ experience have been a superb grounding for my role as an Associate Editor at Texere Publishing. The job allows me to utilize my hard-learned academic skills and experience in my current position within an exciting and contemporary publishing company."
"After graduating with a degree in Computer Science in 2004, I wasn’t sure which direction I should take my career in. I felt that a Masters in Maths would broaden my options so I left Manchester University in 2005 and walked into a trainee role with a large independent UK accountancy firm. I became a qualified accountant, leaving the practice environment as a senior manager in 2014 having gained invaluable experience in auditing and advising SMEs with accountancy matters. I also acted in a financial controller capacity for a number of clients, and it was this element of my job that I grew to love the most and that ultimately drove my move to Texere. I am the company’s financial controller, but get involved in so much more. Texere is a growing business and I’m making a key contribution to that growth."
"While obtaining degrees in biology from the University of Alberta and biochemistry from Penn State College of Medicine, I worked as a freelance science and medical writer. I was able to hone my skills in research, presentation and scientific writing by assembling grants and journal articles, speaking at international conferences, and consulting on topics ranging from medical education to comic book science. As much as I’ve enjoyed designing new bacteria and plausible superheroes, though, I’m more pleased than ever to be at Texere, using my writing and editing skills to create great content for a professional audience."
"I have had varied and interesting career starting working in the retail arena, then trying my skills at being an Air Stewardess (this one wasn’t for me). I loved being a telesales trainer for the Chester Chronicle, part of the Trinity Mirror Group. I have worked in recruitment and spent 15 years working in the incentive and motivation industry running a sales team. The last 3 years have been spent back in the publishing world, which has been challenging but refreshing. Texere Publishing has been like a breath of fresh air invigorating my enthusiasm for sales, and at the same time working with a talented, dedicated and fun team."
"I have 17 years consultative account management experience and developing intelligent solutions for my clients has always been a real passion. I joined Texere Publishing at the start of 2015 and I am already enjoying the mix of traditional and ‘new media’ advertising solutions available through The Medicine Maker.
I am excited to be working with a first class team of media professionals who are working tirelessly to develop cutting edge video and multimedia products for The Medicine Maker’s advertisers."
"I’m a recent graduate from The University of Salford where I studied Graphic Design and graduated with first class honours. During my time at University I specialised in print design, and after a brief period of working in retail and design placements, that has led me to join the team at Texere."
"I started my career with responsibility for storewide stock management at a high-street supermarket. I then moved to Romec to work alongside companies such as The Post Office & Royal Mail, in the electronic security industry. When the business was dissolved, I decided to look for something different.
I landed on my feet at Texere Publishing and am now happily working within Traffic and Audience - managing advertising materials across all publications and assisting with the constant build/upkeep of the print and digital audience. With more publications in the pipeline I am looking forward to the challenges ahead and to helping the business go from strength to strength."
"A recent Graphic Design Graduate, I specialise in motion and interactivity. I started with some editorial experience at Cosmopolitan magazine which introduced me to the design industry when I got the chance to design the Ultimate Women Awards Issue cover. I then had a few months experience working in London with Conde Nast on digital editions of Tatler and Glamour magazines. This involved transferring the print issues into digital for different platforms such as the IPad/ Samsung NotePro.
Now digital publishing has become my career, starting at Texere working across their portfolio of titles. As Tablet Producer, I am excited to be a part of this talented team, bringing elements of motion and innovation into the apps to create an engaging user experience."
"Since leaving college I spent 18 years as a PA, so moving into a Traffic & Audience role is a completely different experience for me, and one which I feel has been nothing but positive.
Having a natural ability to be organised, efficient and the ability to communicate on all levels have proved to be important factors in my role with Texere Publishing. Managing all aspects of our attendance at worldwide exhibitions, organising internal client webinars and assisting in the development of the print and digital audience have given me a fresh challenge and I haven’t looked back."
"After completing my GCSEs, I made the decision to go straight into the workplace and an apprenticeship at Texere Publishing seemed like the perfect opportunity. I am now doing what I have always wanted to do, learning the essentials of professional social media and analytics and applying my love of social media channels to my daily work. I hope to contribute to the growth of Texere’s social media presence and the successes of the company’s brands in this regard. In my spare time I have been receiving and reviewing electronic products for Amazon, which I get sent regularly. I also enjoy running and keeping fit."
"I have had the privilege of working for three major Publishers in various roles over the last twenty five years. Most recently I was the Director of Business Development for John Wiley & Sons.
In my tenure in Medical and Life Science publishing I have listened to customers intently and attempted to provide solutions to their problems. Too often traditional publishers are bound by restrictive policies or married to an antiquated process that doesn’t allow them to be creative or nimble when providing real solutions to customers beyond print and online advertising.
I am very excited to rejoin my old colleagues at Texere as Publisher for the newest publication, the title of which will be announced shortly, and extending the reach of Texere into the United States."
"Over the course of my Biomedical Sciences degree it dawned on me that my goal of becoming a scientist didn’t quite mesh with my lack of affinity for lab work. Thinking on my decision to pursue biology rather than English at age 15 – despite winning an award for a horror story involving a murderous lesbian couple – I realized that science writing was a way to combine what I loved with what I was good at. Away from the keyboard, I keep my dwindling hopes of playing professional football alive by kicking lumps out of balding Mancunians on a Saturday morning."
"Since graduating from University with a degree in History, I was a bit stuck on which direction I wanted to take my career, but I have always had an interest in working in events. Having worked as an administrative assistant and a receptionist, I was approached by Texere to join the team; having met many members of the team, I felt it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. In my role I assist with the day-to-day running of the office, but also work on the events and the travel side of things. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable role, which I’m looking forward to building upon as Texere goes from strength to strength!"
"A former library manager and storyteller, I’ve wanted to write for magazines since I was six years old, when I used to make my own out of foolscap paper and sellotape and distribute them to my family. Since getting my MSc in Publishing, I’ve worked as a freelance writer and content creator for both digital and print, writing on subjects such as fashion, food, tourism, photography – and the history of Roman toilets. When I’m not stumbling through the Argentinian tango or sniffing out delicious wines, I can be found working on The Analytical Scientist, finding the ‘human angle’ to cutting-edge science stories."
"My fascination with science, gaming, and writing led to my studying biology at university, while simultaneously working as an online games journalist. After university, I travelled across Europe, working on a novel and developing a game, before finding my way to Texere. As Associate Editor, I’m evolving my loves of science and writing, while continuing to pursue my passion for gaming and creative writing in a personal capacity."

From decoding the human genome to the burgeoning field of stem-cell research, we live in a time of unprecedented advances in the life sciences. Every day, researchers are unraveling the complex mechanisms underpinning health and disease. And yet, much of the knowledge gained has not resulted in new or improved therapeutics. With practice lagging behind principles, world governments, academics and companies are increasingly recognizing the need for faster – and more efficient – translation. Momentum has been building over the past decade, with a renewed focus on translational research, including major funding programs both in the US and Europe.
Though the meaning of translational science appears to vary from person to person – the end goal is important to everyone. Some define it as translating basic science into a commercial product, while others emphasize the delivery of clinical advances to the people that need them most. What is translational research and how can we best apply it to improve the health of patients? The Translational Scientist explores the answer in a monthly publication, by telling the stories of the people driving scientific discoveries out of the laboratory and into the clinic – and beyond.
The Translational Scientist will launch in January 2016 and will be available in print, via an interactive app in Apple’s App Store, and a website serving the full range of digital solutions life science marketers have come to expect. We will also engage with our audience via Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and other social media.
We develop and deliver customized print, digital, audio and media content for companies, patient organizations and regional
development agencies, helping them improve services and strengthen relationships with their client base.
Texere partners with clients who wish to provide valued products to their customers. We develop the editorial content, handle design and production, target the audience and generate reports for clients.
