Claire Graham

Biologist and translator specialising in pharmaceutical and medical translations.

Claire holds a degree in Biology from the University of East Anglia in Norwich (UK). She was born and grew up in Spain in a multilingual environment, and her native languages are Spanish, English, and French.

After spending several years doing further studies and working in the field of biology in various countries she returned to Spain.

Before becoming a professional fulltime translator, she worked as a clinical research associate in the pharmaceutical industry for several years, first for a pharmaceutical laboratory and then for a contract research organisation (CRO). This gave her an excellent first-hand insight into the field of clinical research.
