The best science demands the best people—and at BioAgilytix’s Boston lab, there’s no shortage of skilled and dedicated scientists. Get to know one of our expert flow cytometry scientists and longtime Boston team member, Benjamin Lamothe.
In our recruitment process we are often asked by those coming from pharma & biotech careers, “what’s a day in the life like at a CRO?” Who better to ask than our own team members who have made the career transition themselves? We start the discussion with Dr. Jim McNally.
We recently sat down with Dr. Jim McNally for a Q&A to hear his “Behind the Science” perspectives on the industry and where he thinks BioAgilytix brings the most value to pharma & biotech customers.
Did you know that our new General Manager, Europe, Dr. Frank Horling, was a client of BioAgilytix before joining our team? We asked him to share his perspectives on what it was like to be a BioAgilytix customer as well as what motivated him to join our lab in Hamburg, Germany.
When you have a program that has stalled or gone off schedule, it is vital to team up with a CRO laboratory that is capable of handling quick turnarounds and rescue projects. We look at an example of how BioAgilytix sprung to action to transform a troubled study.
Today we continue our celebration of Women’s History Month by highlighting another BioAgilytix team member – this time from the technology side of our business. Whitney Gonzales, IT Support Specialist, shares some of her own stories and advice about pursuing a career in STEM.
