EMPLOYEE STORIES

“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. In 3 years I have learnt a great deal from routine manufacturing to completing a clinical trial to setting up a brand new manufacturing facility.

The best part of working in Cell Medica is definitely the people. There is an open-door policy, everyone is always friendly and are willing to help and happy to teach those with a curious mind.

I very much enjoy working at Cell Medica in helping transforming the lives of patients with cancer.”

“I joined Cell Medica as Head of Manufacturing for the US 6 years ago. I have appreciated my role and enjoyed getting our clinical manufacturing activities started. Now, as we begin the next phase for Cell Medica, I am rediscovering the thrill of beginning a new journey of blazing new trails in the Cell therapy community.

I am surrounded by a team of great scientists and collaborators and feel valued by every one of them. Within such a fertile environment, there is no doubt in my mind, that I made the right decision 6 years ago. I am looking forward to the future as we work as a team and focus our efforts to leave our mark in the development of cancer therapies.

I appreciate the culture at Cell Medica and value the fact that we work hard, enjoy what we do, and make a difference to patients’ lives. Cell Medica has also shown great commitment to the community at large, participating in yearly events such as the Alex Lemonade climb and volunteering at the Houston Food Bank.”

“When I was interviewed for a role at Cell Medica in early 2014, it was clear to me that this was a Company with big ambitions and real drive to succeed. I was excited to join a business working at the forefront of medicine, with a clear mission to improve the lives of cancer patients.

I have found the Company to be incredibly supportive, both in a personal and professional capacity. I joined the Company in an Administrative role, but was encouraged to pursue my career aspirations, benefiting from invaluable mentoring and exposure to new and varied responsibilities. In 2018 I completed an HR Management qualification funded by the Company, and was promoted to my current role as HR Manager.

I have always felt appreciated at Cell Medica, that my hard work was recognised and rewarded. It has been a pleasure to work for a Company with a passion for what they do and an honour to be a part of their journey.”

Since July 2016 I have been employed as a Research Technician by Cell Medica. Cell Medica offers me an innovative and pleasant environment in which to work and it is a great feeling knowing that the technology we have developed is now being used to generate gene modified immune cell products for the treatment of cancer.  I feel motivated to come to work and do my best every day because I believe in Cell Medica’s mission and share their values.  Everyone has a voice at Cell Medica and everyone’s role is valued.  Each employee is integral to helping patients fight cancer through cellular immunotherapy. Cellular Immunotherapy is an incredibly challenging, stimulating and interesting field in which to work. The opportunity to use new technologies, work alongside talented coworkers and problem solve everyday ensures there is always something new to learn.
