Dr. Thais De Las Heras Ruiz

Dr. Thais a PhD scientist who puts her medical know-how to good use as part of the scientific writing side of the business.


Thais grew up in Murcia in Spain before moving to the UK to take up Post Graduate research at the University of Keele in cell and tissue engineering.

She holds a PhD in genetic medicine from Newcastle University and was inspired to take up her chosen subject as the result of her Mum’s medical condition and the desire to give something back by contributing to the field of disease development. 

Thais enjoys the challenge of working on different projects and helping develop creative ideas into something successful and tangible, as well as working collaboratively as part of a team to achieve shared goals. 

Outside of the world of science, she enjoys going out with her friends, reading, playing videogames, watching telly and swimming. Thais is also an avid music fan who enjoys singing and dancing to the latest chart toppers. 

Thais has an energetic, bubbly and straightforward manner with a remarkable gift of brightening up the office on the dullest of days.
