About the Speaker

Greta Jasulaityte

Process Development Scientist at MeiraGTx

I did my undergraduate degree in Biotechnology at the University of Manchester. An opportunity arose to join a contract development and manufacturing organisation Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies in Billingham as a research and development scientist working in downstream processing (DSP). This inspired me to pursue an EngD in Biochemical Engineering at UCL, where I continued working in DSP with the research focus on optimising ion-exchange chromatography resins and process conditions in order to increase the quality and yield of the purified pharmaceutical products. Having completed my EngD, I knew that I wanted to stay in the field and focus on emerging technologies – cell and gene therapy. Therefore, MeiraGTx, a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing one-off treatments for conditions caused by genetic inaccuracies, caught my eye. Having worked there for a year as a process development scientist, I have gained a lot of knowledge and skills in project management, technology transfer, full DSP process development from start to finish with the large scale manufacture in mind, and insight into the regulatory affairs.
