Gallus BioPharmaceuticals is a St. Louis based contract manufacturing and research organization that delivers end-to-end biologics process development and cGMP drug manufacturing for pre-clinical, clinical and commercial stages for pharmaceutical, biotechnology and government organizations. Unlike conventional contract manufactures, Gallus empowers their customers by accelerating time to market through personal symbiotic collaboration and virtual ownership models driven by advanced single-use technologies. Gallus’s sweeping approval from every major regulatory body across the globe, including the FDA, EMA, HealthCanada, ANVISA and PMDA, ultimately makes them the ideal partner for contract manufacturing and development needs. Dr. Zustiak will discuss what it is like to work in the Biotechnology Industry in general and his experience at Gallus Biopharmaceuticals in particular as a Senior Scientist in the Cell Culture Development group. He will also speak to the skills and interests needed for a career at Gallus.
