What I do

My position as Laboratory Manager at the Drug Research Unit, encompasses performing and overseeing analytical quantification of drug levels by LC-tandem-MS, UPLC and HPLC to support research protocols. I also participate in new assay development and validation both in supporting the senior chemist in analytical work and in keeping the validation process organized and compiling final reports. I assist and oversee performing quality control checks on analytical work performed in the lab. In addition I oversee the lab data management system used to track receipt of samples from domestic and international clinic sites and report analytical results. As the manager I am responsible for the planning, management and development of laboratory operations, overseeing the implementation of new technologies. Supervisor for personnel and responsible for human resource management. In addition I am the liaison between a complex network of investigators, study coordinators and laboratory personnel from multiple sites.
