Amy Law joined the Aptamer Group family in January as Senior Laboratory Technician; now she’s settled in we thought it would be a great time to catch up with her and see how she is getting on.

Hi Amy, how are you finding your new role here at Aptamer Group?

Hi, so far it has been an exciting new role here at Aptamer Group and I have learned a lot. The team is small at the moment and very welcoming and friendly which has been great.

Are there any particular aspects of the role that you enjoy the most?                              

I especially enjoy the variety of work, no two days are the same.

What kind of skills do you need to be effective in your position?

In this role I feel it is important to have

  • a high level of accuracy and attention to detail
  • organization and forward planning for maximum efficiency
  • good communication skills to effectively interact with colleagues

Many scientists choose to go into an academic role after university, what made you decide to work in industry?

I feel that industry is a better choice for me as work life balance is very important to me and I have heard that in academic roles it is not as agreeable.

And finally, if you weren’t a scientist what would you be doing?

I would have trained to be a plumber or electrician and run my own business!

Thanks Amy, it has been great chatting and learning more about you!
