In the biotech hub of Cambridge, MA, a leading biopharmaceutical company was on the lookout for a seasoned professional to helm their Manufacturing Science and Technology (MSAT) team focused on complex and advanced Biologics. Our client had several strong internal applicants but needed to compare them to the quality matches Stratacuity was able to provide to balance the required technical expertise with a strong right culture fit for the team.
