Meet Andrew

Section Head of Medicinal Chemistry at Roche

Being born in the North East of Scotland I had a very simple ambition 013 to leave the area and do my best to help others with medical need. At a younger age my hobbies included mainly sports - with particular focus on football and golf. I did consider a career in both of these sports before heading off to University. I continued to play football throughout my time at University 013 always being selected as team captain in the teams I played. When I joined Roche in 1999 this trend continued and I left my role as team captain only in 2011 013 due to injury 013 and now have now led the Roche football team as Coach for two excellent seasons.
