Working at Cell Medica

We strive to be the leading provider of cellular immunotherapy products for the treatment of blood- and solid cancers (oncology) and infections following hematopoietic stem cell transplantations (immune reconstitution). Our mission is to develop products and therapies that will transform the lives of patients.

Our products harness the natural power of the human immune system to fight cancer and post haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) infections without the risk of severe side effects that come with conventional anti-viral drugs or chemotherapy.

As we grow, we are looking for people who share our passion and want to be part of an exceptional team who are working to unlock the full potential of this powerful new scientific technology. We know that it is only by having right people working together in the right environment, that we will achieve our goal.

Everyone has a shared responsibility for making our organization successful. To support this, we offer highly competitive salaries, a range of benefits and make sure everyone’s contribution is recognized.

Oumar Diouf, GMP Manager, US

I joined Cell Medica in November 2012 from Baylor College of Medicine as Head of Manufacturing for the US. I have enjoyed my role to get our manufacturing activities started and I have been happy to take on new responsibilities as my role slightly morphed.

I love the people at CM – I work within a great team, and feel valued by each and every one of them, from administrators all the way up to VPs.  I have colleagues that I aspire to be like in terms of career and experience. Everyone is recognized for their contribution to the success of CM. There is no divide between senior management and the rest of the team, which creates a great working environment.

I appreciate the culture in the fact that we work hard but enjoy it, while making a difference in patients’ lives.

Tiffany Tam, Cell Therapy Manufacturing Associate, UK

When I discovered during my master’s studies that I had secured a position as a GMP Clinical Manufacturing Associate at Cell Medica, I was ecstatic. I started the role in November 2015, 4 days after my graduation, and since then I have been delighted with the many opportunities made available to me.

The prospect of learning new techniques was a major factor in my decision to join Cell Medica. I came to Cell Medica as a blank piece of paper, and after 1 and a half years I have gained experience in a wide variety of areas, many of which I had little or no experience in prior to commencing this role. I have gained knowledge and skills in GMP aseptic techniques, QC techniques (such as flow cytometry), scientific report writing, database generation, stock management and many more.  I have also relished the opportunity to attend conferences and courses, both in the UK and internationally.

Another aspect that drew me to Cell Medica is their open-door policy. All my colleagues are approachable, willing to help and happy to teach those with a curious mind.

I very much enjoy working at Cell Medica; the Company is very supportive and this role has been a great platform from which to start my career.
