How long have you been with Alcami?
I have been with Alcami for two years.
What is your role?
I am a Process Chemist in the Kilo Labs Manufacturing department, which manufactures APIs, normally generics, on a smaller scale (gram to kilogram scale).
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is training new personnel and collaborating with the Technical Services department on the Kilo Labs processes with which I have become intimately familiar. I also enjoy learning about these processes beyond the executional level (i.e. the sequence of steps in the batch record); understanding the underlying chemistry within these processes provides a greater respect for the chemistry and answers “the why question,” or why I am executing a step—or sequence of steps—a certain way. This has also been beneficial when writing complicated deviations that require a sophisticated understanding of these processes.
