Dr. Louise Valentine

Dr. Louise Valentine is Head of Enterprise and Entrepreneurship for the College of Arts, Science and Engineering, and Vice President of the European Academy of Design. She was integral to the £8M Digital R&D Fund for the Arts (2012-14), a collaborative fund established to nurture innovation, supporting the development of new business models and new ways of effectively engaging with the public. She has recently been involved in the design of a new bra for women following a mastectomy, whereby textiles with AMR were used to ensure the new design did not exacerbate the post-operative wound(s). The work was done in collaboration with Dr John Biddlestone (Plastic Surgeon) and St Michael's Breast Cancer Support Group (Cornwall).
