Our strengths are complementary. We are cell biologists with years of experience on the bench; skilled wordsmiths who can communicate to general and technical audiences alike; and entrepreneurs with passion, drive, and business acumen.



Alessandra is a scientist turned entrepreneur. She earned her PhD from University College London (UCL), where she used both light and electron microscopy to understand the cell biology behind disease. Her research journey has taken her to King's College London, and later to Singapore. Alessandra loves using images to explain and amplify scientific research, and it is from this passion that ImagenScience was created. She was awarded a place at the Antler incubator in 2018 and further developed the company through Entrepreneur First in Singapore.

Helen is a cell biologist with a passion for science communication. She completed her PhD in Cell Biology at UCL, where her love of membrane trafficking began. Since then she has continued to do research in virology, medicine and immunology and development. Although most researchers admit that nothing beats the thrill of making a new discovery with their own eyes, in order for research to have a positive impact on society, communication is key. Helen loves to share research stories with a diverse range of audiences, from the scientific community to schoolchildren and the general public.
