Dr Alice Carruthers - Science & Medical Writer

A science and medical writer, Alice is passionate about creating well-researched and digestible content for the general public and healthcare professionals. In June 2019, Alice traded the grey skies of Manchester, UK, for the sunny beaches of the Gold Coast, Australia. In the UK, she worked in a fast-paced medical communications agency, creating a range of scientifically robust medical content for several industry-based clients.

Alice's interest in cardiovascular science was sparked during an industry placement in Cambridge, UK in 2010, where she was part of a research team developing novel small molecule drugs for the treatment of atrial fibrillation. She subsequently completed a PhD in cardiovascular pathophysiology at the William Harvey Heart Centre at St Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry in London, UK (2012-2015).

In her spare time, Alice enjoys cycling round the Gold Coast and growing her own veggies. Alongside her husband, a songwriter and musician, she also pursues a number of artistic ventures in the music industry.
