Sascha, Deputy Head Analytical Service
Following completion of my PhD I started working at LGC as a Synthesis Chemist. Since then I have worked as Team Leader of the Synthesis Team IV which has led to my current role in the Analytical Department with the newly established role of Deputy Head Analytical Service.
What do you enjoy about working at LGC?
I enjoy working in a great team and having the opportunity to shape the future of the company together.
What has been your proudest moment at LGC?
When I was involved in a project for one of our customers: we had just three weeks to isolate, identify and synthesise an unknown impurity in one of our customer’s sales batch. If we had not been successful, our customer would have had to withdraw their drugs with the corresponding consequences for their reputation. Fortunately, our team was able to solve this very challenging task in time and deliver enough reference material to prove that the impurity was not harmful for humans.
"I enjoy being faced with new challenges every day and to work together with a lot of people with different skill sets."
