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.

Camilla Winnewisser, Research Technician, Zurich

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.
