James, Head of Animal Sports Testing
Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to have worked in many different teams on the site, including within Drug Development Solutions, Supplement/Feed Testing, Animal Sports Screening, Research and Confirmatory, Government Contracts, Human Occupational Drug Testing, a division-wide Technical Development Team, setting up a Training academy within the Sport and Specialised Analytical Services Department and also on a secondment to GSK on behalf of the CMC team. For the past eleven years, I’ve been focused mostly on Sports Drug Testing; which has always been my biggest scientific passion.
What do you most like about LGC?
Although being part of such a big company can initially be somewhat bewildering, it provides great opportunities in the long-term to gain experience in different areas. Also, it is the people that make the company what it is, which is definitely the reason why I’ve been able to develop in my career here.
"Whilst the science underpinning the work we do is undoubtedly interesting, the thing I enjoy most is the output of the Sport Department’s Training Academy since this helps people to develop as rounded Analytical Scientists by giving them experience in different teams over time."
