How long have you been with Alcami?
I joined the Alcami team in August 2016.
What is your role?
My title is Technical Specialist. I interact with sales and clients to understand the scope of the client’s project in order to draft protocols and reports for client projects. I also execute the validation and transfer activities. Additionally, I assist project managers and analysts with their technical questions.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
It is very rewarding when we execute analytical validations and issue reports which are then used to launch new products. It’s so inspiring to see a project from its beginning with validation to clinical use in patients.
What are your team’s latest achievements?
We successfully validated test methods for a chemotherapy drug that is currently in clinical trials.
How do you see those accomplishments affecting the pharmaceutical and biotech industries?
As technology improves, we will continue to see new methodologies and drugs which provide better outcomes for patients. It’s exciting and challenging at the same time.
