IWD Inspirational Female Founders Spotlight: Dr Nichola Conlon

Nichola is an accomplished molecular biologist specialising in the study of aging as a biologically complex disorder. She received her PhD in Physiology from Newcastle University, home to the largest institute for aging research in Europe. She is also a trained Cosmetic Scientist.  Building on her expertise in molecular biology and years focused on early stage drug discovery with a leading biotech firm, Nichola Founded Nuchido to bring potent, life-enhancing scientific discoveries and education to the public with speed and transparency. 

Nichola’s work to translate recent scientific discoveries into interventions to increase healthspan and vitality recognises that while great progress has been made in treating age-related ailments, the focus now must be placed on reducing the burden of these diseases as we live longer lives.  Along with leading scientists at Nuchido, Dr Conlon has identified the right combination of targets to restore cellular NAD+ production back to youthful levels, leading to the development of a breakthrough NAD+ booster called Nuchido TIME+. 

What would you love to share to encourage other women to start their own business?

Unfortunately there still remain stereotypes that women simply don’t seem able to shift. Although we say that women can have it all – the job, the family – that’s not a mindset that everyone has. And it often results in women not having the confidence to pursue their dreams/being discouraged.

I encourage women to embrace their ambitions and be who they want to be.  If your own story is not inspiring you it is time to rewrite it. Believe that nothing is too good for you – the only person that needs to believe in the vision is you. You don’t need to seek approval from other people, instead surround yourself with the countless women who have achieved what you wish to achieve and will support you on your entrepreneurial journey. 

What are your 5 tips for entrepreneurial success?

Master resilience: Nothing is ever simple or straight forward, but there is always an opportunity to learn.

Learn to say no without having to explain yourself.  

Surround yourself with positive and successful people whilst limiting negativity. All energy is contagious.

Rest is just as important to success as working.  Allow time to recharge. 

Think big – ideas are always considered crazy before they are considered a breakthrough.

Who are the 5 women who most inspire you?

Sara Blakely 

Natalie Ellis 

Marie Curie 


Rosalind Franklin

What is your favourite quote?

“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.” – Henry Ford  

I am a firm believer that there is always something you can learn from even the most negative situation. There is no such thing as failure, only an opportunity to learn.
