Patricia Pont Sanchis

Patricia is BSc Medical Biosciences with Management student at Imperial College London, eager to complement my scientific skills with business acumen, and influence global health policies. Having lived in Lisbon, Warsaw, Milan and now London, I have embraced different cultures and appreciated the diversity around me. Outside of the sciences, my interest in music has taken me around the world playing the violin in various orchestras. I’m hoping to pursue a master’s in Pharmaceutical Management and expand my horizons while travelling the world.
