When you first learned about Prellis Biologics and the vision of the company, what were some of your initial thoughts?
When I was applying to the position at Prellis, I was very intrigued by the cutting-edge technology that Prellis does, which is not only product-oriented, but also scientifically very innovative. As a scientist, I was very excited that it would be a great platform for me to dive deep into some of the challenging problems in immunology.
When you reflect on your team at Prellis, does anything stand out to you as being really unique?
My team at Prellis has really smart, collaborative, and supportive peers. I always feel that we learn a lot from each other, irrespective of the hierarchy. Additionally, Prellis has people from diverse scientific backgrounds which is really encouraging. Our well-being is always given a priority here.
What excites you most about the company’s future?
The antibody discovery platform has a great future in antibody-based therapeutics. To be directly involved in Prellis' EXIS™ technology is extremely motivating — it has the potential to help millions of people suffering from chronic diseases. It makes all the hard work worthwhile.
