QA Ops Team Leader, QA mRNA

Can you share your career story at Lonza with us?
My first contact with Lonza was reading about it in the news, and I was impressed with its growth and how it covers a diverse range of therapies - from smallmolecules, to cell and gene and biologics. I joined Lonza in July 2019 as a Quality Assurance Manager, and in 2022 I was promoted to be a member of the QA mRNA leadership team. My team and I play a crucial role in supporting the safe and consistent production of mRNA, adhering to specific standards and striving to continuously improve results and eliminate errors - which ensures the safety of the patient. My work involves finding innovative solutions to challenges and making sure my team is engaged, curious and takes the initiative to find the best possible solutions. I feel like I am in the right organization to learn, grow and make an impact. I love working with such a dedicated and reliable team, and seeing my team members prosper and grow is the biggest motivation for me, and keeps me moving forward. Working with employees from over 58 countries is something pretty special about working at Lonza Visp, and something that one does not encounter that often. I am also an ambassador for Valais4You, where I support my colleagues in integrating not only at Lonza, but the Valais region as well. It is exciting to see the site growing and more customers choosing to partner with us.

Lead Scientist in Phys-Chem Analytics & Quality Control Group

I chose Lonza because…
Lonza is incredibly agile, always evolving to serve the needs of the industry by developing new technologies and solutions. With Lonza growing so quickly, I felt there were lots of opportunities and potential to grow with the company.
Since I started at Lonza, my career has progressed…
Beyond my expectations since 2011, when I started as a trainee with Lonza's Analytical Services Department in Slough (UK) under the Singapore Economic Development Board's STRAT program. It was a rigorous 1-year training program across various analytical groups like process analytics, characterization and method development & validation. By month ten, I was trained to perform around 15 Lonza platform bioanalytical assays and was offered a role as Analytical Technologist by Lonza, Singapore Development Services. In 2014, I was promoted to the Scientistposition. In 2017, I joined the recently established drug product services business unit as Senior Scientist in Phys-Chem Analytics & Quality Control Group. It's been an amazing few years.
It's special to work at Lonza because…
It offers the whole spectrum of services from drug substance development all the way to drug product manufacturing. We're unlike any other contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) - we don't just act like a service provider but we actively solve our customer's challenges.
My work is meaningful because…
We have lots of experience and expertise, allowing to act as consultants and help customers get their drugs to market faster. I learn something new every day and being in a multinational company enables me to work closely with colleagues from various sites.
What makes me feel good at the end of the working day is…
Knowing that what we do in the lab helps to ensure the quality, identity, strength, and purity of drug products that impact the lives of patients. Being able to deliver analytical data to customers on time also makes a big difference. And I enjoy helping to onboard new colleagues so they can hit the ground running and get their first jobs right, first time.
The most exciting thing about working at Lonza is…
The dynamic, fast-paced and challenging nature of the company and the work we do.
What I most appreciate about my team is…
Their wonderful personalities. I also get incredibly strong support and recognition from my managers. The teamwork is second to none, everyone collaborates and helps one another towards a common goal.
