I am a conscientious and

I am a conscientious and organized professional with over 15 years biological laboratory hands on and managerial experience in the biotechnology industry. I hold a B.S. degree in Biology. I most recently worked as a Consultant working with emerging biotech companies. I am interested in getting back to my first passion as a bench scientist.

While working in the biotech industry a functioned as a laboratory manager. I have been responsible for scheduling of project work and personnel, personnel evaluation, training and insurring laboratory compliance to cGMP and GLP standards.

I have extensive experience performing ELISA, RIA, Western Blot, gel electrophoresis, IEF and immunoblot analysis as well as bioassay development. I am also experienced and feel comfortable handling radioisotopes and biohazard material.

I am experienced in design and analysis of experiments in a cGMP environment and successfully transferred these designs to the manufacturing platform. I have authored Standard Operating Procedures and protocols. I am very accustomed to managing multiple tasks simultaneously. I have excellent computer skills, superior organizational skills and pay very close attention to detail. I am also accustomed to presenting research data in written reports as well as oral presentations.

Throughout my career I have developed both monoclonal and polyclonal antibody producing mammalian cell lines. I have performed mice immunization, serum analysis, cell fusion, subcloning and scale up activities. I have many years experience culturing these cells in stationary flasks as well as both stirred and hollow fiber bioreactors. I have experience setting up both table top and floor model biofermentors.

I have extensive experience with continuous culturing of both anchorage dependent and suspension cell lines. I have also established primary cell cultures from mammalian tissue. I have extensive experience in establishing cell banks, growth media optimization and the creation of cryopreserved cell stock.

I am very accustomed to working in a team environment and I communicate well with others. I am experienced and very comfortable making written as well as oral presentations.
