Marta Sadlej
Hi everyone!

I am Marta, a Biomedical Sciences student, passionate about science popularisation. I will be starting my second year of studies in September.

I believe that community outreach is especially important nowadays, with the horrible amount of false news. Our events undoubtedly can help tackle that problem, both in and outside of the university.

I am passionate about finding new ways to tackle problems. Our project of updateable immunity passports has won the second place on "COVID Challenge", a hackathon organised in April, beating more than 200 participants. I have great experience in organizing events. Apart from attending a large number of science-related webinars, only in the last month, I was involved in running a meeting with the Nobel Laureate Robert Lefkowitz, as well as the UCL SciCon's Pizza&PhD event.

My interests include many areas of medtech. My work with molecular dynamics and quantum modelling during the ongoing gap year gave me a great insight into the field of bioinformatics. During the last summer, I completed an internship in a stem cells lab, where I was exploring the exciting field or regenerative medicine. I have completed several courses on online platforms, which broadened my view of science.

Vote for me for the next Community Outreach Officer!
Danilo Paganelli
Hey! My name is Danilo and I would love to be the secretary for the medtech society! I have recently become increasingly interested and passionate about immunology, and really want to help in the journey to fighting diseases through vaccines and medicine breakthroughs – I actually signed up for vaccine trials for covid19 and Chlamydia! As the secretary, I would ensure that everything gets done and that the society is the very best it can be, and I would also run the newsletter, which I would like to include pieces from members so that they can get involved too. I really want to help make a difference in the world, and I hope that I can do that here by supporting the Medtech society!
Aishwarya Shah
Hi, I’m Aishwarya and I study Medicine. MedTech UCL’s events over the past year have been incredibly thought-provoking for me and has made me come to realise that this industry is not only something I definitely want greater involvement in, but also that I am very passionate about medical technology. With well-renowned speakers from all around the world, MedTech UCL is a truly innovative and unique society.
I am highly organised, meticulous in my approach and a highly-effective communicator. From being the Team Director for a social action project, to researching, preparing, writing or presenting assemblies every single week, I believe my past experiences have allowed me to develop a skillset fit for this role. I would be sure to facilitate clear internal and external communication, eliminating problems from very early on.
If elected, my role would primarily entail working closely with the President and the Events Officers. I am a firm believer in organisation, scheduling and allowing for a buffer zone, especially when preparing for events. Furthermore, hopefully with more in-person activities in the upcoming year, some prospective events I suggest are a hackathon to promote collaboration between people of different skillsets, more events in collaboration with other societies and hearing more from women and people of a BAME background.
Thank you for taking the time to read my manifesto. I hope this highlights my enthusiasm for this society and suitability for this role!
Laasya Eluri
Hey everyone, I’m Laasya Eluri!

Being part of MedTech UCL has truly been one of the brightest spots of my first year at university.

I coordinated the MedTech portal team this year and worked hard on the innovative side of things, working closely with the president on new ideas such as podcasts, newsletters and ‘MedTech Mondays’. It has been an incredible learning experience with some of the most talented people! As the editor of the MedTech portal, You have also seen me work on article workflow, speaking to writers, interviewing experts and launch days.

Beyond my role as an editor, I learned a lot about what it takes to make a society work, effective communication and collaborating with senior and industry experts for projects. Being on the committee this year has really taught me what is required of the role and more so of my ability to go beyond it! I have absolutely loved my time here and it’s ignited my passion for the field intensely.

I will be running for general secretary in the forthcoming elections to continue embodying the MedTech vision and build society events to be bigger and better!

I will be committed to coordinating the independent parts of the society to allow for a purposeful and fun year as well as bringing more of my ideas from the meeting rooms to real life! I would love for you guys to vote for me - so together, we fulfil our vision to provide a comprehensive understanding of medicine and technology to revolutionize MedTech!
