ELAROS is absolutely delighted to announce that Toby has been appointed into the new role of Deputy Project Manager of Open OH.

Toby is a recent graduate from The University of Sheffield, with a MEng in Biomaterial Science and Engineering. This is an interdisciplinary degree studying materials for use inside the body, it draws aspects from materials science and bioengineering, covering topics such as materials processing, cell and molecular biology, physics of living systems, design of medical devices, metallurgy, and materials for biological applications.

Toby’s master’s thesis investigated the viability of using slug mucus as inspiration for a next generation medical adhesive, within the Naturals Materials Group. 

He has a passion for a wide range of outdoor pursuits from cycling to sailing, climbing and mountaineering, and is a qualified RYA keelboat instructor and spent the summer after completing his degree teaching sailing on the Norfolk broads.

Toby joins ELAROS at a time when the company has secured government funding to take forward a number of its early-stage products and it is hoped that over this year Toby will move onto manage one of these.

Alongside his responsibilities on Open OH, Toby will be involved in supporting/driving other ELAROS projects and products forward: C19-YRS, Neu-Restore and Sleepy Fox, as well as supporting other projects within ELAROS’s rapidly growing programmes portfolio. 

ELAROS colleagues were delighted to meet and welcome Toby into the growing team this week in Sheffield at the kick-off meeting for Open OH with the UK Government funding body SBRI.
