Chief Executive Officer, Aparito

Dr Elin Haf Davies began her career as a Paediatric Nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital, moving into research and spending six years managing clinical and academic drug trials, in metabolic, neurology, endocrinology and pain.

Her PhD at University College London focused on the development of age-appropriate and disease-specific biomarkers and clinical endpoints in neurometabolics (lysosomal storage disorders).

In 2007 Elin Haf moved to work at the European Medicine Agency Paediatric Team where, amongst other projects she evaluated over a 100 Paediatric Investigation Plans, working closely with Scientific Advice and the Orphan team.

She founded Aparito in 2015, a digital health company focused on developing patient-centric digital outcomes to support decentralised trials. She also serves as the Chair of Board of Trustees for Metabolic Support UK, a patient advocacy group supporting 400 rare inherited metabolic diseases.

In her free time, Elin has a passion for extreme adventure to raise money for charities close to her heart. In 2007-2008 she rowed across the Atlantic Ocean, raising £190,000 for metabolic research at Great Ormond Street Hospital. This was followed with a world-first rowing across the Indian Ocean as part of the first female team to ever complete the route.
