  3. 3. PANELLISTS Mike Johnson Divisional Director, Corporate Partnerships MRC Technology Mike Johnson heads up MRC Technology’s Corporate Partnerships division, building relationships with universities and charities that support life science research. MRC Technology (MRCT) began life as the internal technology transfer company of the Medical Research Council, which is the UK's largest publicly funded biomedical research organization. MRCT became independent in 2000, although the vast majority of its business came from MRC for the next decade. Since 2010, however, MRCT has been searching for assets elsewhere. Now, about 70% - 80% of its projects are non-MRC. For example, MRCT last year partnered with the Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, which is part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The institute is providing therapeutic targets, which can be further developed at MRCT's Centre for Therapeutics Discovery. ‘We've been looking globally for good science, and we now have more projects than we can handle. The question was whether we could prioritize and share these projects. Now, we've pulled in global organizations to push the science forward.’ Elena Cinquegrana Associate Director, Global Energy & Oil & Gas Practice Navigant Elena Cinquegrana is an Associate Director at NAVIGANT Consulting with over 16 years’ experience in the Energy sector, directing, managing and implementing global multi-million dollars full cycle transformation projects, covering all aspects of business strategy transformation, operational excellence, performance improvement, technology excellence, procurement planning, change management, organisational change and scalable cost/benefit solutions.
