Name: Czarina Carino
Alcami Site: Durham, NC
How long have you been with Alcami?
It will be my 11th year with Alcami in June.
What is your role?
I am a scientist in the pharmaceutical development laboratory at our Durham, North Carolina site. I evaluate, develop, validate test methods, perform abuse deterrence studies, and train analysts in specialized analytical methods.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is completing and executing a test successfully– be it an evaluation, development, validation, or a special research project– because a successful execution entails a lot of things– company filing a new drug application (NDA) on time; a timely manufacture of a drug product; sharing experiences and knowledge; contributing to the site’s goals, and most of all, helping to ensure that a product delivered to the patient is safe, has integrity, and is of high quality.
