INSPIRED BY PRELLIS INTERVIEW
When you first learned about Prellis Biologics and the vision of the company, what were some of your initial thoughts?
"When I first learned about Prellis' mission, I was blown away by how much of a positive impact they could make on the world. So many people are affected by the organ transplant wait list, and it’s a long, difficult process. I have family members who would benefit if Prellis is able to reach its goals. The amount of lives we would be able to help is unthinkable. I studied biomedical engineering with a concentration in biomaterials and tissue engineering, so this company was right up my alley. Prellis is the perfect place for me to make a positive impact on people's lives."
When you reflect on your team at Prellis, does anything stand out to you as being really unique?
"It’s an amazing group of people. Each team member is brilliant. I’m always amazed at what each person accomplishes each week. In the lab, ego gets left at the door because everyone is striving for the same goal, and it’s amazing how much progress we are able to achieve."
What excites you most about the company’s future?
"I’m excited to see what all of our progress amounts to. I had an internship at Prellis, and then I spent a year away from the company; when I returned, it was unbelievable to see how much progress had been made. The antibody side of Prellis was something I didn't see when I was an intern, so the work the cell biology team is doing now blows me away. If we keep making progress at the pace we have been, it’s going to be a game changer."
