Bilal Bham, MSc, Managing Director and Social Media Specialist
I graduated from the University of Manchester with a BSc in Genetics (2.1 Hons), and an MSc in Immunology and Immunogenetics, completing placements with the European Molecular Biology Laboratories (EMBL) and the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) Report during my studies. Whilst at EMBO, an article I had published in the Science and Society section sparked my interest in and creative flair for scientific writing.
I became a medical writer, first at a CRO that was called Accovion (now CliniPace), then at Sanofi, both in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. On my return to England, I joined a small biopharmaceutical company, Renovo. I’d always wanted to be on own boss, and it’s liquidation presented me with the opportunity to become a freelance medical writer, the success of which led to the launch of Bham Pharma Ltd.
Renovo’s liquidation gave me the opportunity to become a freelance medical writer, the success of which led to the launch of Bham Pharma Ltd.
My passion for technology and flair for marketing enabled me to diversify the business when I realised the potential for content to engage over social media. Bham Digital Ltd was the result, bringing together the best of hard science and effective social media.
When I am not working on social media or medical writing, I can be found in the gym at the crack of dawn, on a Latin dancefloor at the weekend, watching a movie in the evenings (I have about 1,000 DVDs and a Netflix account!), listening to 80’s music, engaging in personal growth and development, or on stage doing musicals with my amateur dramatics group! I believe in helping people and am heavily involved within my community as vice-chair of our community association, and am on the board of several other community help organisations. I love watching sports, my football team is Manchester United (I know…!), and I follow England and Team GB in everything! I also enjoy blogging and vlogging about personal growth, food, and politics!
Matthew Gammon, Creative Manager
I am a consultative Creative Manager, with over 15 years’ experience providing new and prospective clients insight and expertise in global healthcare communications. Over the years I have developed a strong understanding of the industry and the challenges faced when developing effective and compliant healthcare marketing. I always enjoy speaking to clients about their challenges, whether it’s taking client briefs or developing and presenting full proposals, or simply offering advice and guidance.
The industry is currently undergoing a paradigm shift when it comes to individualised treatment, and I’m truly excited about the future of healthcare, particularly how connected technologies will create positive health outcomes for patients via big data, smart devices and tailored therapeutics delivered through a deeper understanding of individual’s needs.
When I’m not being creative and talking to clients, you can find me enjoying time with my partner and our children, watching them experience the world is a joy to behold, and truly one of life’s most precious gifts.
