Paul, a fermentation scientist by training, carried out his doctoral studies in the Department of Biochemical Engineering at University College, London, where he investigated methods of controlling recombinant protein production and activity in strains of E.coli.

On completing his research he took up a position in the Molecular Biology Department of Covance Laboratories Ltd. in Harrogate and over a number of years held various roles within the Operational and Commercial teams of the Division of Biotechnology.
