Molly is a Bioassay Scientist at Avitide, which entails determining how our molecules interact with the biological drug substances we receive from clients. She uses ForteBio Octet (BLI) technology, along with other binding technologies (ELISA, etc.) to select the best molecules from over 5,000 to 1 or 2 lead candidates. She also is the lead manager for a large and complex multi- year project, which entails data organization and task delegation throughout the entire workforce.
Molly knew that she wanted to pursue a career in the science industry, opposed to academia, and set her tasks in graduate school to meet this goal. She can offer advice about what techniques most industrial science companies are looking for in an employee, and how you can obtain those techniques during graduate school. She can also answer questions about large companies vs. small companies, postdoc vs. no postdoc, and other general advice.
