Amanda has been an integral part of our close-knit team for more than 12 years. Her years of industry and academic experience have helped her gain a comprehensive understanding of important concepts and techniques relevant to our research. Her educational experience from her undergrad and masters programs includes an emphasis on neurobiology, oncology, and stem cell techniques. As a Senior Scientist, she is responsible for initiating, directing, and executing research and development, directly managing our bench team of researchers. She works with CRO’s to set up pre-clinical studies to aid in further exploring our mechanisms of action for our Captons®. Recently, she has been more involved in the translational research side, designs and coordinates animal studies, and helps plan the development path to get our Captons from bench to clinic. Additionally, she works closely with Victoria on Grant Writing.
