MedEngine welcomes Tiia Luukkonen


We are thrilled to introduce to you Tiia Luukkonen, our new Scientific Project Manager in the Medical Affairs and Marketing team!

Tiia has an extensive background in genetics with years of experience in academic research, as well as commercial experience in genetic diagnostics. Her core competencies are medical and molecular genetics but an interest in business sparked early on for her.

”MedEngine was familiar to me through previous creative collaboration. My experiences as a client convinced me of MedEngine’s great impact on campaign effectiveness, high level of commitment and quality, and genuinely friendly and caring ways of working.”

Tiia is passionate about scientific content creation and marketing, and her impressive resume in this field, along with her ambitious and optimistic personality, perfectly complements the growing MedEngine team.

“It is inspiring to join this team of talents. I look forward to meeting the clients and helping them succeed by tackling the most challenging cases and pioneer projects within the pharma and healthcare industry.”

As a dedicated crossfitter, Tiia will most likely be found at the gym outside of working hours. She loves spending time at her summer cottage enjoying the outdoor sports opportunities and peace while surrounded by nature.

Here at MedEngine, the fall has started off very busy and full of new projects, so Tiia’s presence and input is greatly appreciated by her colleagues. Welcome!
