Profil #16505

I am competent in scientific support on both process development and manufacturing production. For the last 3+ years, I worked as a downstream scientist in a pharma company (Bavarian Nordic), and thereby I became a downstream and purification expert. I also got a good knowledge and experience on upstream and cell culture.

    Downstream scientist

    Bavarian Nordic A/S

    Bavarian Nordic is a pharmaceutical company focused on the development, manufacturing and commercialization of cancer immunotherapies and vaccines for infectious diseases. I worked in Process Development department, which plays a crucial role on process investigation, new process development, process validation for new products, and support on manufacturing production.

    I worked primarily as a downstream scientist and also have a good knowledge and experience on upstream processes in cell culture.
  • Investigation and optimization of downstream and upstream process at pilot scale
  • Developing new processes, e.g. new TFF process, to replace the current process in production
  • Production process design for new products.
  • Scientific support on process validation for new products, including DoE study, CPP evaluation, reviewing validation report, support on engineering runs, etc.
  • Process upscaling from pilot to production scale. Support and training for newly implemented process at production.
  • Tech transfer between different sites in the company and between CMO and the company.
  • Process support and troubleshooting on manufacturing production, e.g. help on deviations, OOS and change control from GMP batches.
  • Preparation, draft review and record review of Master Batch Journal for the production of preclinical material at pilot scale.
  • Selection and qualification of equipment at pilot plant, e.g. TFF, Sonicator, pump, etc. Help on qualification of equipment in manufacturing.
  • Analysis method setup and validation in PD, e.g. SDS-PAGE, BCA, UV280, viscosity, density, DNA gel.
  • Close collaboration with different departments, e.g. R&D, Production, QC, QA, PM, etc.
  • I got thorough training on cGMP and documentation. I practiced them every day.
  • Our group applied LEAN in the daily work, and used several whiteboards for planning the tasks, organizing staff training, and KPI, etc.
  • • Writing and reviewing study plans, protocols, SOP, reports and deviations.
