Predictions? The biopharmaceutical industry is betting on gene therapy products. Analytics for their characterization are still in their infancy and many questions are still open in regards to their structure and composition. I can foresee many analytical groups making great contributions in technology development in this area.

Secret to success? Working on a hot topic like biopharmaceuticals gave me a lot of visibility and also opportunities for collaboration. But most importantly, the support of many people that I have worked with over the years, from my early times during my PhD to the people in my own group. They all helped me grow into the analytical scientist I am today, while still keeping a smile on my face.

Advice? Don’t be afraid. Enjoy your work and the people that you work with. If things do not turn out as you expected there will always be alternatives. Working with anxiety, fear, and stress is not going to provide you with a better outcome.
