Nuvera Life Science Consulting is excited to announce a new team member! Alicia Shang has joined the Nuvera team in December 2019.
Alicia holds an MPH degree from Yale School of Public Health, majoring in Epidemiology and minoring in Regulatory Affairs. Prior to Yale, she completed a BSc. degree with Honours in Biomedical Sciences from National University of Singapore. With a genuine passion on life sciences industry, Alicia has worked for several industrial leaders in different practices, including Global Regulatory Affairs at Alcon, APAC Sales Operations at Illumina and Marketing at GE Healthcare. Observing and contributing to how different organizations achieved their successes, she gained experience on working with internal and external stakeholders across brands and product life cycles.
Besides industrial experience, Alicia is interested on clinical research, where she invested both experimental and analytical efforts and co-authored 7 publications to the date. Her major focus was on clinical application of MRI sequences on disease prognosis/diagnosis and tumor stage differentiation. Additionally, she is passionate on women’s health and completed a master’s thesis on using mindfulness-based dietary techniques to prevent gestational weight gain.
Alicia is currently based in our Cedar Knolls, NJ headquarters. She moved to the U.S. less than three years ago, which is the fourth country she has lived in, after China, Singapore and France. Even 12-hour flight away from home, she still proudly introduces Chinese history and culture to whoever is eager to learn. For now, she is trying to find a sport that she can finally be good at, and we shall see how that goes.
